An interesting experience having exotic butterflies floating around and on you. A warm welcome literally when you enter into the extremely humid world of the butterfly. A great time and very good value for money. Your ticket is a multiple visit one. Recommended.

Hi, Under 5’s are free at Buttefly World. Please note that we are separate to the museum as we are a privately owned family business and not part of the council. Thanks Michelle
