Review: Sensational Butterflies


Living in London has it’s advantages. The Natural History Museum annually host the Sensational Butterflies exhibit, allowing hundreds of exotic specimens to literally fly into your face.

Unfortunately, the organisers appear to have severely miscalculated the human capacity for the butterfly dome, and it’s quite difficult to restrain ones self stopping the 5 year olds trying to pick up the butterflies.

Some photos from the exhibition:

IMG_7657The exhibit is hosted in a big, white, heated dome, which resides outside the front of the grand Museum building in South Kensington. At the small cost of £4, the exhibit is very beautiful; a short, sweet, cheap treat for a resident, let alone a tourist. Open from now to September 2013, until next year.
