Best described as dull and poorly presented. Although admission was free and my companion claimed to enjoy it, I thought it was nothing more than a poorly presented collection of ill-kept, unkempt and scruffy exhibits. Think 1950s school projects found at the back of a cupboard and put on display.

Presentation of the butterflies and other insects is well done. The rooms are a bit dark but you can turn on the lights if there is power. Nice short stop good for kids

Situated on thePN campus, pretty far from Lakeside, the so called butterfly museum actually is a room inside the Annapurna Natural History museum.The entrance is free. It is small but colorful and the butterfly collection is impressive. They apparently host almost all of the 660 different species living in Nepal, plus some foreign ones. It was fast to visit but... More

This small museum is located in the university premises, quite far from the lakeside. Ground are unkept and this part of the city is not interesting, but we liked the museum. Only for butterfly lovers!

For nature lovers who want to see more butterflies than you ever thought possible. I am sorry that they are not alive, but they are well categorized and you can learn a lot. Pokhara must have been a butterfly's dream at one time.
