Sensational Butterflies at the Natural History Museum 3rd April to 14th September 2014
The exhibition returns to the Natural History Museum for a sixth year, housed in a specially constructed tropical enclosure on the Museum’s east lawn. It takes you on a journey through the life cycle of one of nature’s most fascinating creatures – from crawling caterpillar to beautiful butterfly.
Wandering through the butterfly house, you may spot caterpillar eggs about to hatch, you can get up close to silk-like chrysalises in which caterpillars are undergoing metamorphosis and enjoy the hundreds of adult butterflies and moths taking flight around you.
Featuring stunning species from across the globe, the enclosure offers a captivating insight into the science behind these colourful creatures and their unique life cycle. Combining interactive displays and activities, it’s a must-see exhibition that will be loved by children and grown-ups alike.
