Butterflies Exhibit Extrodinaire

The Annapurna Butterfly Museum is located outside the city and as we were walking it took us some time to find it. The museum is located in the grounds of the local university - the Prithivi Narayan Campus. Once at the museum, you can spend the better part of a day looking at different types of butterflies, insects and other arthropods found in Nepal. The collection has been systematically arranged in display drawers that can be explored by visitors.
Hats off to Mr Colin Smith (aka Mr Butterfly and Butterfly Baje in Nepali) who dedicated his life to collect and preserve these butterflies.

Its an amazing place where you get to see & learn about butterflies of different species. The first time I went there was about 23 years ago. The old foreign "Butterfly Man" is still there!

Amazing retro attraction

Not sure why this is classified as just the butterfly museum, it is the Annapurna Natural History Museum. We arrived by public transport from the lakeside, walked around the area a bit and then the university grounds before going into the museum. I totally dug it - this is like a Portlandia skit, but in a really good way. The paintings, murals, taxidermy, is all so kitsch. The butterfly area is obviously a passion project. Unfortunately there was no English-speaking staff around, but we still learned a lot from reading. In my opinion, this is a great little adventure in Pokhara, really happy we went and surprised this doesn't get more traction with visitors!

Located inside the biggest university of the city. There is a large cooection of butterflies and also other insects. They are well preserved, unlike so many other artifacts in Pokhara Regional Museum!
