Museums and Other Places to See Butterflies

There are many ways in which you can ‘visit’ and see butterflies, particularly popular are butterfly farms. There is another opportunity to see butterflies, but it’s not one that most people think of immediately – it’s museums. Whilst not live, the butterflies on display are quite still, not hiding and not in chrysalis form!

Oh yes, there’s several major advantage that museums have over any other butterfly place – you can see hard to find or rare butterflies and you can see species that are extinct!

It’s a great time to get up close and personal. Choose from the places below to see what we’ve covered:
