Obviously everyone knows what a butterfly looks like but how many times have you seen one in real life? Especially, the large, brightly coloured and exotic varities that normally only live in other countries. Well, returning for the 9th year in a row, The Natural History Museum is bringing back it’s live exhibition ‘Sensational Butterflies’. Bringing in a whole host of rare and exotic species of insect, you’ll be able to get up close and personal with species normally only found in Africa, Central and South America and Asia.
Like a tiny, tropical paradise in the middle of the city of London, you’ll see butterflies of all shapes, sizes and colours flapping around your head, as well as the caterpillars they came from and you might even get the opportunity to see a butterfly hatching! And how much does it cost to escape to this haven for an hour or two? Just over £5, plus due to it being in the grounds of the museum, you may as well take the opportunity to check out the rest of the exhibitions for free!
What: Sensational Butterflies at the Natural History Museum.
When: 31st March – 17th September 2017.
Where: The Natural History Museum, Cromwell Rd, Kensington, London SW7 5BD.
How much: £5.85 per person.
