Sensational ButterfliesFrom chomping caterpillars to beautiful butterflies, the Natural History Museum comes alive at summer with the arrival of the tropical butterfly house on the museum lawn. A popular family outing for the past 10 years, Sensational Butterflies adds more diversity every year - offering the chance to see the Blue Morpho and butterflies and moths usually seen in Africa, Asia and South America - so even regular visitors can spot new additions. Take on butterfly challenges, try out games and activities as they explore one of the planet's most amazing life cycles. Look into the hatchery window and watch butterflies emerging from their chrysalises and experience the magic of walking among hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies.
