Not the most exciting attraction on Sentosa but an educational experience for slightly older kids, best for four and up.

This attraction pales in comparison to the standard typically set by Singapore... The park is run down and in need of a good revamp. We felt the high entry fee (nearly $20) was outrageous for what we saw.

I was amazed at the multitude of species of Butterflies and other insects such as super sized preying mantis'. There were also several extremely colorful tropical birds including Parrots, Toucan's and some birds somewhat like peacoks, but were something else. LOVELY! Great static displays inside the building. Rather small place, but worth the time and money.

Not a must watch & can be skipped easily. As the same suggests the place has not many butterflies & was very disappointing.There are more dead specimens to alive ones. Few spider,lizard,beatle are there in a glass enclosure.Dont go its a waste of time & money.

This place is a really terrible. As Singaporeans we were appalled that this place even exists in Singapore. It's really rundown and there are not many butterflies. They also had a toucan in a tiny cage and a pair of hornbills in a dismal enclosure. There were more dead specimens than there were live insects. The place seemed to be... More

We got a guest pass for Sentosa island and 3 attractions. We decided to visit the butterfly park as we wouldn't be leaving from Singapore so missing out on the butterflies at the airport. Unfortunately it was a waste of a "ride", there are maybe 4 prototypes of butterflies and not many of them. The butterfly area isn't very large... More

This was by far the worst Butterfly exhibit I have seen anywhere I have visited, a total rip off at $S16.00 per adult then the audacity to charge another $S5.00 each to have a Macaw perch on your arm for 2 minutes. In 20 minutes spent looking for them saw 6 butterflies of 3 species and in poor condition. There... More

Was expecting more!! Not many butterflies at all & where were the insects?? Didn't see any...Sentosa is more rides than nature, you can miss this attraction and not worry.

This visit wasn't planed we were on our way past and thought we would go in. I think it would have been better but there were several young school groups that blocked the exhibits and had the guides attention. The butterflies are beautiful and there was heaps! There was also birds and insects. We spent probably half an hour to... More
