The Natural History Museum is #18 in our London Bucket List

It's not often that you get to see a live animal at the Natural History Museum -- they usually stuff them and put them inside a glass cabinet (but I suppose it would be quite hard to stuff a butterfly!).

But for six months over the summer they will be setting up a tropical butterfly house so you can have a wander through some free-flying moths and butterflies, and learn a little about their life-cycle as they transform from a caterpillar into a chrysalis, and finally into a beautiful butterfly.

They have species from Central and South America, Africa and Asia, and also a tropical habitat of flowers, vines and foliage.

If this butterfly house peaks your interest then you might like to check out the butterflies at the London Zoo as well.
