Fun place for a rainy day

Very warm inside, lots of butterflies and few other wildlife. Turtles, frogs, quail, and the at the end the shark exhibit! 145 kr for an adult.

I really liked the exhibition about the great white shark. Beautiful aquarium with small sharks, fishes and very cool light. The guide who talked about the sharks was unfortunately rude and arrogant when I asked a question after he had his talk.

The place consists of two "rainforest" rooms and one for the fish/sharks. The butterflies are beautiful but could be more of them. We saw many dead ones on the floor. There are two sharks that are relatively big (no one expects a great white) and interesting. Basically, that's all. It costs as much as the world famous Vasa Museum. It's... More

The butterflies were nowhere to be seen , you actually had to look very careful for them in order to spot any.I was able to spot like 5-6 relatively small butterflies out of which one was impaled and had a broken wing . This... More

Like others have said its a bit outside of the centre but not too hard to find (subway to Odenplan and bus from there) and its also a bit of a walk through the park to get to the butterfly house. I dont know if it was the time of year we visited but we only saw 5 butterflies and... More

Fjärilshuset or Butterfly House is a bit away from Stockholm center, and if you are a tourist without your own car, you'll have to take subway to Odenplan and then a bus. However, it's not too difficult to find but it takes a while to get there. The place is in a lovely park, Hagalund park, which has a royal... More

The kids (10 & 11) wanted to come here after being lured in by the many ads on the subway. Fjärilshuset now also boast an aquarium with sharks and this was what they really came to see. To be frank I found the place severly overpriced and the aquarium was a real let down as well. Having visited the wonderful... More

The butterfly house have the potential to be a nice little stop for everyone interested in gardens and nature. It's small and well suited for those of us with short legs and small feet. Reality however is a totally diffent thing. From outside it looks like a factory. Dark and brooding it lurches at the end of a mud puddle... More
