Beautiful butterflies freely fly around you inside the butterfly park, reminiscent of a tropical forest. Check out the Pupa House – a glass exhibit where the butterfly pupae are preserved to give you an idea about the butterfly's remarkable life journey of metamorphosis.

Housed within a 70m-long cave is Insect Safari Tunnel that conserves numerous intriguing insects in their natural habitats. These include the large Dynastes Hercules beetle, diving beetle, giant scorpions, and giant millipedes. The first of its kind in the world, the park’s significant insect collections also include fireflies that form the major highlight of the Firefly Enclosure Show.

There’s more to see in the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom beyond butterflies and insects. The park has an aviary that has some of the world’s most striking jungle parrots on display as well as an area exclusively dedicated to reptiles such as lizards and snakes.

Another segment of the insectarium is the Insect Kingdom Museum, where ‘Insect Revolution’ exhibits throw light on the history of insects’ evolution as well as several million-year-old insect fossils. The park conducts stage shows twice a day in order to enable visitors to get better acquainted with insects, birds, and reptiles.

You can easily access the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom via the Blue Line Bus or the Green Line Bus services.
