Don't bother going to this attraction. Very few butterflies in fact more on the outside of the exhibit than inside. Only wished I had read the reviews on this before going in - would have saved ourselves 32 dollars. Insect display only had mainly dead specimens with other kept in small jars. Don't believe the brochures and spend your money... More

Really really bad. Imagine having an idea and a vision and creating it and then forgetting it is there. Imagine someone trying hard to keep it going with no money but thinking they could employ a photographer to make money taking pictures of birds with people but still not contribute to the welfare of the butterflies or birds. Or the... More

I've been to the butterfly zoo near Monmouth which is fantastic and I come to Singapore on holiday to expect something even grander and something for toddler to enjoy as much of Sentosa is geared for older children except sea aquarium.... Not so! Really overpriced, unfriendly staff and only four species of butterflies and some birds. Three year old daughter... More

$16 to see 20 butterflies and some dead insects and a couple of reptiles..... DON'T bother! This place was extremely disappointing for the price and for the advertising they do. I was expecting hundreds of butterflies flying around but there were about 20 and I was in and out in less than 10 minutes.

My husband and I were looking forward to Sentosa, we decided to visit the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom first and follow with the other attractions. After walking through the mostly dirty park, rubbish all around, with an unkept feel, we found the Butterfly Park. The first display we come across are the two turtles. Oh my, the enclosure was...

Very few butterflies- saw a lot more at the butterfly farm at St Albans in the UK. The displays are very drab and the environs are quite shabby- seems like the forgotten part of Sentosa Island.

This was the low light of a great time in Singapore. More dead and injured bufferfiles on the floor than butterflies flying. Once inside could have your picture taken with sick looking birds for a price. Wood gone in the pier and walkway so very easy to injure yourself. If this was in a rustic setting then may have given... More

An entrance fee for $ 16 is quite expensive, but... More

Really disappointing! Small, dirty and for the price should have been better! Nothing compared to other Butterfly parks I have been too! No butterflies and animals are in a very poor state.
