Sensational Butterflies

Sensational Butterflies promotional artwork

Enjoy a fun family day out among hundreds of live butterflies and moths in our tropical butterfly house.

Sensational Butterflies is now closed. Discover some of the highlights of the exhibition with the video and features below.

'As one of our planet's most loved insects, butterflies are some of the most interesting organisms. They can see a wider spectrum of colours than us, and have evolved spectacular colour patterns,' says Dr Blanca Huertas, Senior Curator of Butterflies at the Museum.
'With the natural world changing fast, Sensational Butterflies gives us the chance to enjoy a bit of a tropical forest here in the city.'
