I've been to live butterfly exhibits before, but this was a step up. The sheer quantity of butterflies is astonishing And so many of the species were enormous. A little tip for parents of very young children - if your child doesn't like flappy things they may not enjoy this exhibit as large winged beasts landing on them may freak them out - we witnessed one 18 month old having a major meltdown as a large brown butterfly tried to settle on her flower print t-shirt.
The chrysalis of the giant butterflies were equally large in size. There was a glass case full of emerging butterflies which was sensational. But our little guys found it hard to see because it was a bit too high up and crowded by school children. There were butterfly life cycle stampos to collect on the way round but when we went these too were very crowded by school kids.
If you are looking for an up close and personal butterfly experience though, this is definitely one to check out - but be careful you don;t accidentally take one home with you!
