Sensational ButterfliesFrom chomping caterpillars to beautiful butterflies, the Natural History Museum comes alive this summer with the erection of a tropical butterfly house on the museum lawn. Visitors to Sensational Butterflies will be able to take on butterfly challenges, try out games and activities as they explore one of the planet's most amazing life cycles and experience the magic of walking among hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies. Not only offering the chance to see butterflies and moths usually seen in Africa, Asia and South America, the display also has a hatchery window where visitors can watch butterflies emerging from their chrysalises.
