London in the summer is one of my favourite places in the world. The sun comes out and people naturally become happier and there are a thousand things to do in London. The one thing that happens year on year is the Sensational Butterflies exhibition at the Natural History Museum. I have seen it taking place each year but never ventured into the tent to see the exhibition and experience it for myself.
As part of my birthday, my husband very kindly treated me to a visit to the Sensational Butterflies exhibition. After buying our tickets, we headed into the tent with a pre-warning that it would humid inside the tent. It was warm in the tent but I was instantly enthralled by the butterflies fluttering around all over us.
I got to see tropical butterflies including the swallowtail, blue morpho, the moon moth and many others originating from Africa, Southeast Asia and North and South America. I later found out that each year hundreds of tropical chrysalises arrive into London into the tender care of the Natural History Museum’s experts so they are actually hatched at the museum.
I felt like I had entered a Disney fairytale with all the colourful butterflies occupying every surface under the canopy. I was honestly fascinated by them. It was a wonderful opportunity to see these tropical creatures up close and just admire them. I had an amazing time and would highly recommend a visit to the exhibition.
