    Make Sure to Visit in Conjunction with Miracle Garden
    This is well worth a visit, and combine it with Miracle Garden, which is just down the road. The location consists of an exhibition hall, and then three different areas with many different species of butterflies, where you can interact and view them flying around. Our kids had plenty of them land on different parts of their bodies, which was a thrill for them. In the domes, there are plenty of areas to sit and relax, and more enclosed areas to have an even more close-up experience. We probably spent about 1.30 hour there all up. Make sure you check the discount pages for reduces prices. We paid 165 AED via Groupon, as opposed to 210 AED at the door.

    Unique place filled with butterflies
    This is a small garden which houses butterflies inside what appears to be like a greenhouse or some indoor facility. It is not outdoors. The butterflies fly all over and you can take pictures with them on your finger. No food or drink allowed, and it costs money to enter. It takes about 30 minutes or so to see. Great for kids, overall an interesting visit after miracle gardens.

    Hidden Gem near Miracle Garden
    Our family had a wonderful visit to the Dubai Butterfly Garden, located near the Dubai Miracle Garden. The garden's enchanting display of over 15,000 butterflies in more than 50 varieties was truly mesmerizing, providing a unique and educational experience for visitors of all ages. The climate-controlled domes covering an extensive area allowed us to observe the butterflies in a comfortable environment. The facility's amenities, including souvenir shops, a kids' cinema, and dining options, added to the overall enjoyment of our visit. Ticket information was accessible, with various options available for a tailored experience. Our time at the Dubai Butterfly Garden was a delightful escape into nature, and we highly recommend it for families and nature enthusiasts seeking a serene retreat in the heart of Dubai.

    Once off experience
    Was a lovely experience, but not something I would do again though. Once is enough. There are about 4 different zones that you walk in, the last one was my favourite. It was very calm and peaceful. Butterflies flying all around. The only downside was that people actively go pick up the butterflies, this shouldn't be allowed as it harms them. In the zones there are these tents that you walk into and there are butterflies in there. The one staff member kept hitting the fence which made the butterflies flutter around. Obviously that way the chances that a butterfly might land on you is higher, but seems a bit unnecessary and stressing out the butterflies for people's entertainment isn't great. There were also a couple of dead butterflies lying around. Perhaps this is from stressing them out and allowing people to touch them. I expected more butterflies and a wider variety of, but no luck. Was still lovely to walk around and see all the beautiful butterflies.

A family of 6 attended Dubai butterfly garden. Plz Floor not kids friendly my 4 year son tripped from the stone type floor that was not structured probably broken at parts that got him tripped and cut badly on his knees, the funny part that they had no first aid in hand or a plaster. Very disappointed with my experience. And don’t recommend it if you have a young one. Specially that they are aware of the flooring that problem.

During your stay in Dubai you should invest about 2 hours to see this place. We very really astonished about what we could see. They have butterflies which are about 15 cenimeters in diameter and they can sit on your arms or fingers. Very knowleable guides do explain everything in detail to the visitors.

Medium sized exhibit . Completed in about an hour or so . A variety of butterfly kept In temperature controlled gardens . There is a small pond with a few Koi fish. Wish they would put up a few screens with some short videos on butterfly so we can learn more about . Watch your step, some butterfly tend to rest on the floor . Worth a one time visit , good experience for kids who are comfortable with insects
