Fantastic!

I was not hoping this museum to be that great, but it is really really very good and very educative for children. A must visit for all those who visit Pokhara !

BUT......I was pleasantly surprised. The grounds. .....unkempt, the building. ....not kept up, the cabinets, .....19th century. .... The collection of butterflies, moths(sp) insects and bugs was fantastic. If you are a nerd and a science freak, then by all means go there. We spent an hour, but I am going back.

A "not so easy to find" but "worth a trip" kind of museum, set on the university ground, with colorfull animal sculptures along the wall, and passionate employees. A tiny museum with an very unusual atmosphere, like being invited in some nature enthusiast scientist for a private tour of its collection. Hard to describe but definitely worth a visit. When...

The museum is up in the city and it is nice to see especially if you are a butterfly lover like me. Otherwise it might not be very interesting, and the area is certainly not

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...
