Nice environment adapted to live butterflies. Everyone who likes butterflies should include this attraction on your list!

I felt a bit disappointed with it. I was expecting that butterflies was the core of the house, but it was only a couple of sticks where you can see how the butterfly was born (if you are lucky). But, then you can not see them actually around. The rest of the attractions are thought for kids, and not really... More

The place itself is tiny, they put plastic tiger, crocodile and a cobra to give it a better look... The aquarium part barely has any fish or shark

The museum is nice. But I would advise all visitors to eat somewhere else before or after the visit. The restaurant in the museum is expensive and bad. Ich rate allen an vor oder nach dem Besuch zu essen. Das Restaurant ist teuer und und das Essen schlecht.

Stockholm City is full of advertising for this kitsch thing. It cost 155 SEK to get in for an adult. You pay so much to see the Kitsch. It is only a very expensive tourists trap, The children will see the advertising and will want to go and you get tricked with bad plastic animals and nothing real or from... More

Only reason it's not 5 stars is because of age of building as it's not an ultra modern place but absolutely worth a half-day trip for kids. Even though it's on the smaller scale, kids won't think twice. Great gift shop, rainforest, butterflies, fish, turtles, frogs, birds and now sharks in the new acquarium in the back. Little interactive exhibits... More

Colourful and full of Life with hundreds of butterflies and Fish. The restaurant on the garden outside was very good with an option to spending more time walking around other attractions within the compound. One can easily spend a whole day!

A fairly underwhelming butterfly house compared with others I've been to - perhaps because it was December, there were few butterflies. There is a small aquarium, but overall, it didn't feel worth the price or the trek out to Hagaparken. In warmer weather, if I were going there anyway, I might add this on.

This is a nice little place to visit. It’s not the full zoo experience but there is enough to entertain you for an hour or two. Since I was here years back they have now gotten an aquarium too, a nice addition to the setup. You’ll be able to get a little lecture about sharks and the other fish in... More

Amazing place! Ticket costs 155 Swedish crones and it was worth it! You can see sharks too! Butterfly room is quite warm and humidity.
