Horniman Butterfly House at Horniman Museum And Gardens



The Horniman Museum and Gardens' eagerly-awaited Butterfly House will open its doors to the public on Monday 14 August. The Butterfly House is home to hundreds of beautiful butterflies, free-flying in a specially planted tropical indoor garden. Visitors will be able to see species from around the world, look out for rare butterflies like the Horniman's Swallowtail, and watch them hatch out in the puparium as they learn about the life-cycle and behaviour of these fascinating creatures. Excitement has been mounting since plans for the new attraction were announced earlier this year, and following months of construction, planting the indoor garden with more than 60 exotic plant species, and training staff in butterfly care, the Butterfly House is now ready to open. The Butterfly House is open throughout the year and complements the Horniman's current Living Collections - including alpacas, jellyfish and bees in its Animal Walk, Aquarium and Nature Base - and its historic Natural History collections. A range of butterfly and nature-inspired gifts for all ages can be found in the Butterfly House shop.
