Butterflies flutter about freely in the Natural History Museum's popular Sensational Butterflies exhibition which returns to the east lawn from 29th March 2013, allowing visitors to get up close to the beautiful winged insects. As you walk through the butterfly tent you can find out how some of the animals survive by camouflaging themselves to blend in with the leaves, roots and trees.
