Sensational Butterflies at Natural History Museum



This Easter, escape to the tropical butterfly house and see the crawling caterpillar transform into the beautiful butterfly at the all-time favourite National History Museum.

Sensational Butterflies returns for its ninth year in 2017 and remains a spring and summer favourite for schools, families and anyone seeking solace from the busy London streets.

Running from the 31 March – 17 September you can see so many butterflies and learn about their lives in the specially constructed tropical enclosure on the Museum's east lawn.

Wander among 100s of free flying butterflies and moths from all over the world. Marvel at the behaviour and sheer diversity of these incredible organisms, usually found in the tropical forests of Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Follow the trail through a tropical habitat of flowers, vines and foliage. As butterflies fly overhead, you'll pass happily-munching caterpillars, promised-filled chrysalises and frantic feeding stations.

If you are interested in seeing these beautiful animals flying freely, this is the best place in London to go. It’s is a wonderful chance to learn, via close-up observation, about these amazing creatures, and to delve into the world of sensational butterflies.
