  • First of all, impressed large domes, which are home to insects. Very large, spacious and spectacular. When you get in the real sea hundreds of varieties of all kinds of butterflies that overwhelm the indescribable feelings and enthusiasm. Butterflies aren't embarrassed themselves and sit directly on people. Very interesting and unusual.

  • I took my visiting family there but it wasn't fun at all. It's all very old and the exhibition of photos "made of" real butterflies wings is quite creepy idea I must say...I think they should just clo...  more »

  • This is another miracle in Dubai where they bring lots of variety Butterflies from different countries and maintain them properly. I am sure they are very sensitive where you need to have extra care especially this time of region. Bravo to the team who is behind this amazing work and keep it up. Kids will really enjoy this Garden for sure.
  • Beautiful place with a few rooms to look around and see the butterflies. Generally busy but not too many people that you cannot enjoy. You can easily spend an hour or two just wandering amongst the pretty areas. Butterflies are used to people and alight happily on people
  • Such a great, unexpected experience, in the middle of the desert! Luxurious vegetation placed in 4 interconnected domes, where a large number of butterflies from different species fly free. If you're lucky enough to be there in the right time, you can actually see the butterflies hatching. If you're wearing bright colours, the butterflies will probably just land on your clothes. You can also lift them on your hand, just be careful not to touch their wings. You can take as many photos as you want, but there are also photographers that would take shots of you and you can buy the photos when you exit.
  • Awesome place to visit specially for kids. A unique experience with the most colourful and beautiful creatures. There are thousands of butterflies of different types. The ambiance is extraordinary and the environment maintained inside is awesome. 4 separated areas with different species of the butterflies. The place also has some shops and a movie theatre where kids can enjoy watching movies. The overall feel of the place is amazing...
  • I went there together with some family members and it was an amazing experience. Its far from the city proper or any bus stop and metro station so you need to hire a car to go there. Don't worry about the parking because the area is quite big. It's an indoor area because the management/staff needs to keep a constant temperature cool enough for the butterflies to survive. Don't miss out on this experience when you travel to Dubai.
