It is alla bit musty and not very well kept, but alright for a visit and not without some interest if you have nothing much better to do

This was a day out with the kids and we ventured into the middle of KL to the butterfly park. It is actually linked up to the gardens and the small deer park so you could spend the day here. There is a shuttle run...More

This is a beautiful place to visit. There didn’t seem to be as many butterflies as we saw at the butterfly park in Costa Rica, but it might be because this is a larger space. The ponds are spectacular. Super clean and the fish are...More

Love the entire garden. Nooks & corners well kept. Gushing sounds of riverine & falls. Free flying butterflies & moth. The gardeners "green fingers" indeed. Impressive display of taxidermy. Nearly the entire world collection. In one airy cool enclosure much appreciated. Kudos to the curators...More

Don't be put off by the external look of the place. Once inside you can appreciate the work that has gone into this attraction. The park-like setting is beautifully presented and the butterflies are many. Sit and relax to enjoy the butterflies (many) coming to...More

To be honest, walking around in a big atrium full of butterflies is only amusing for like 10 minutes. After that, you’ve seen one, you’ve seen em all. They do have some really beautiful species and the garden is landscapes well. It seems to be...More
