I visited this attraction. Although the orchids and plants in the park are beautiful, I didn't really see many butterflies. There are a couple of parrots and other birds, as well as a very large bearded dragon. They also have a couple of mac caw parrots - one can take pictures with them for a small fee. The insects were... More

As others have said it was a little run down, there also weren't that many butterfly's. Might have been improved with friendly informative staff. We visited as part of the 20 attraction pass so I enjoyed it as part of my sentoa visit. The very best part was close interaction with the birds. I was shocked that there isn't even... More

a must watch attraction! The butterflies are beautiful and it's quite a pleasant and peaceful feeling sitting amidst the natural habitat created for these beautiful species.

I went first in 2007 which was a memorable experience. This time round I found the number of butterflies much lesser and so was the variety. Maintenance has not been top notch. The staff is pleasant and friendly. But nevertheless it is still an interesting place to visit. I would not be so harsh as some of the other reviews... More

We visited the "park" (a loose term for the very small area it occupies) a year earlier and there were quite a lot of butterflies and my daughter could try to get them to land on her. This time there were almost no butterflies at all. The whole place is run-down including some small bridges that have broken slats in... More

We visited the butterfly park today, just after opening. It was a really lovely time to visit as no crowds around and much cooler. The butterfly exhibit was well layed out, and did have two butterfly's land on my hand which was pretty amazing, I remember coming to this attraction when I Was a kid in the late 80's and... More

Ok, so the main feature of this enclosure is the butterflies which are attractive, but no better than what I've seen for free in the Changi Airport butterfly garden. The enclosure is surprisingly small, the garden is (by necessity, I accept) very humid and the attached insect museum is dirty and dull. Parts of the exhibit were closed for repair... More

I could easily have given this place a 1 or 2 out of 5. The whole place is looking very tired and some of the exhibits absolutely disgusted me! I'm a huge animal lover, though I'm not a hater of animals in captivity if done right. There are tonnes of examples of animals that are better off in a zoo,... More

Butterfly park is not as enigmatic as it seems in the photos. You can visit it if you have time. The park is not as clean as the rest of sentosa. Also not much to see. there are very few butterflies. It is ore like a museum with pictures and information on insects. Only positive point are a few colourful... More

This review is definitely not up to date- I visited years ago when I was still a kid. The place was exceptional! As a child I was amazed by what was offered. It is sad to read the recent reviews about the place! I haven't been back since but I hope that if the reviews are true that they will... More
