Amazing. The number and the range of butterflies were astounding. The chrysalis were awesome to watch.

The novelty of nature’s tiny symmetrical works of art never seems to wear off. This beautiful exhibition on the lawn outside the museum has been running all summer and its popularity shows no signs of abating. There’s science for those who want it, with thoughtful displays and interpretation for junior lepidopterists. The real appeal, though, is seeing these amazing creatures. They seem to have an uncanny sense of when they’re about to have their photo taken, so the only way to see them in their full glory is in the flesh.

Excellent exhibit if you don't get I see butterflies very often! If there is a long line to get into the museum, go to this exhibit first, then you can fast track your way into the museum afterwards.

Really nice exhibition! It's not very big but you can see a lot of butterflies and you will be surprised how many of them will land on you and stay there for a while. It's outside of the National History Museum and during school holidays, where everyone was queuing for the museum, you didn't wait for the butterflies. I recommend to bring a good camera as you can take perfect pictures!

The exhibition itself is lovely but there is an extremely rude man working inside where the pupae are who shouted at children there and frankly, should be sacked. That is no way to behave.
