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

Many butterflies and flowers. But this is not the woth-seeing place. The garden/park surrounding the Butterfly House is a beauty though.

Spend your time exploring the park surrounding the butterfly house instead of going inside, exploring the park is free and its very scenic. Entry to the butterfly house is 110SEK for an adult which is a ridiculous price considering the small area you can explore (should cost 60 or 70SEK). I'm unsure where the 3000m2 measurements came from but I... More

Nice excursion on a cold day as the temperature inside is above +30C :-) Rating is down because of the price to enter and aslo that you are not aloowed to bring your trolly (even if the baby is a sleep) inside to have coffe.

There are butterflies and fish and frogs etc here. A good place to bring kids but not so interesting for adults I think.

Went there with our 1,5 year old. One butterfly circled around her a couple of times. She didn't know if she should be scared or thought it was fun. But it sure was fascinating! There is a lunch cafe indoor and you can even sit outside in the garden. It's beautifully located in Hagaparken (big park). There are also fish,... More

Saw about 5 small butterflies. Most definitely a tourist trap. Waste of time and money. The park in which the butterfly is located is beautiful.
