Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center Attractions


Amanda M: “My husband and children have never visited the islands on Lake Erie, Put-in-Bay was perfect for their first time. Our main point of interest was the Butterfly House. Easy to get to right off the ferry, I recommend using a golf cart to get there. The attraction sits among a slew of other fun things for the family. As the sun was hot, I was thankful for the shade as we parked! Bathrooms conveniently situated. The front porch of the Butterfly House had a bunch of rocking chairs and benches, to rest your feet and enjoy the day. Inside is one of the most awesome gift shops, highly dedicated to butterflies obviously, but everyone could find a souvenir. While quaintly sized, this butterfly house was so active with these colorful insects, over 50 varieties! The staff was so lovely and welcoming, and willing to answer EVERY 3 and 5 year old’s questions. Looking forward to going back and sharing the other attractions another time.”

Andrea C: “Well worth the price of admission to me. Very cool experience, even though I was in a hurry to get through because I needed to catch the ferry. I wish I could have spent more time…maybe next trip!”

Ed T: “Took my girls there years ago and my wife and I went recently went while on the island. There are literally thousands of butterflies in this place. Gotta see it for yourself.”
