Fjarilshuset (Butterfly House), Stockholm
(2.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Enter Stockholm's tropical oasis and admire some of nature's most radiant colors at Fjarilshuset (Butterfly House). Located inside Haga Park, the lush indoor heaven of exotic greenery, bright flowers, and warm streams is home to more than 700 different species of butterflies flying freely. The temperature inside the habitat is regulated throughout the year and allows its delicate residents to flourish even in Sweden's cold climate. Even though it's located outside Stockholm city-center, the park is easily reached by car or public transportation. Humidity inside the habitat is kept at high levels, which benefits the butterflies, but might be unpleasant for sensitive visitors.

  • The Butterfly House is a perfect destination for families with children. There are many exciting things to discover for both children and adults. Right now, there were not so many butterflies. It varies with the season. But there is much else to look at. The aquarium with sharks and fish are fascinating plus a bunch of other small animals and fish.

  • The place has nothing special but to go with small children, younger than 12 years old, is recommended. There are few butterflies but the buds are and as they come out, that is worthwhile. They simulate a jungle and the recreation is good. The pool of sharks is well, you can see without any problem but isn't Aquarium. There is a biologist giving an apparently very interesting explanation for adults and children, but if you don't understand Swedish, then you miss it. If you're not going with children, I do not recommend it. At the end I asked my kids and they responded that they passed it well and he liked them. 400 Kr per family. 1.5 hours is sufficient to traverse it. In the middle of the Park make it is beautiful.

  • Good place to spend an hour with a small kid, some turtles, big fishes, butterflies and sharks (small/medium size). Check in advance for the Sharks presentation, only at a specific time. There is also...  more »

  • Offers a nice walk in a subtropical environment for you and your children. Lots of interesting animals. The shark aquarium is awsome!
  • Came for the butterflies and stayed for the shark tank. The museum is small, so don't expect a huge exposition. Everything is well kept and the animals seem happy. It's great for bringing kids. If you don't have kids I suggest you to come around 12, because most of the parents with kids are eating at the adjoining restaurant at this time.
  • Very disappointing! You pay for the parking and beware I had a fine of 300 kr for only 5 mins delay! Afterwards the admission entry fees is not worth at all what you see! Very few butterflies which can be counted... a number of reptiles most of them were fake! It was extremely humid inside. A few tanks of fishes and a shark. It is not a recommendation for those who have visited butterfly houses and aquariums.
  • We went here because my wife really likes butterflies. She liked what she saw, but really wished there was more too it than there was. We only ended up seeing a few different types, and there was not a lot of stuff to read about them. They did have a decent amount of them when we went, so you did not have to go looking for them, but there were plenty that were also there but difficult to spot if you were not looking for them. Included in the price is some other exhibits with some small ground birds, and a few tanks of fish, including 1 giant tank with several sharks inside (black tip and reef shark). Overall it was interesting, but it just seemed really over priced for what they offered. I could see this being a lot more appealing if you had young kids with you, but that was not the case for us.
  • We had so much fun. This place is great. Family friendly, with a cafe outside and lots of souvenirs. The museum is fun and time flies inside.
