If you’ve ever been fascinated by the extraordinary lifecycle of a butterfly, then you need to check out Dubai’s very own dedicated attraction – Dubai Butterfly Garden. As the world’s largest covered butterfly garden, the unique space is comprised of a museum, gift shop, workshop space and ten climate controlled domes, divided into four sections.

Inside the domes are 45 different types of butterflies, all with stunning features to admire. Visitors can learn about their entire lifecycle, from the birth as a caterpillar, into metamorphosis, before emerging as the gracious creatures we know and admire.

Throughout summer, Dubai Butterfly Garden is offering kids the chance to improve their butterfly knowledge, with a series of educational art workshops. From Saturday to Thursday, your little ones can enjoy a series of arts and crafts activities to keep them entertained all summer.

After the garden’s butterflies have passed away, the in-house artists are able to prolong the joy their beauty brings to people through artworks and portraits. These pictures are framed and hung in the museum, and available for visitors to purchase from the gift shop.

 

Tickets to the garden cost Dhs55 for adults and children aged three and over, while kids under three and people of determination are able to access the attraction for free. Dubai Butterfly Garden is conveniently located next to the stunning Dubai Miracle Garden, which is currently closed for summer.

Dubai Butterfly Garden is open all-year round, every day from 9am to 6pm, and all areas of the attraction are air-conditioned. So, next time you’re looking for something different to do during summer, why not discover the fascinating world of butterflies?
