Go on an immersive journey through the stages of butterfly metamorphosis.
Experience the fascinating transformation of a butterfly from an egg to a beautiful winged adult. With only around 1 in 20 eggs making it to adulthood, the butterfly is met with numerous dangers and threats during each stage of its life cycle.
You will get to gain a deeper insight into how the butterfly behaves, interacts with its surroundings, and survives each stage of its life cycle to reach adulthood.
Live Butterfly Enclosure
Step into Singapore’s first and only indoor butterfly enclosure, where humidity and temperature are carefully regulated to ensure that plants and butterflies thrive. Encounter up-close, beautiful butterflies* from Singapore and around the region!
*The number of butterflies and species vary depending on the season.
Some butterflies express a phenomenon called iridescence. This helps them survive in the wild. See how the butterfly ‘shimmers’ in this Tilt-tilting exhibit as you alter the angle of light shining on it!
