Dubai Butterfly Garden
Updated on 25 January 2017

Covering 4,500 sq metres with 9 custom built domes, a butterfly museum and a butterfly flower park, Dubai Butterfly Garden is the largest covered garden in the world. 

At the entrance you will find the spectacular butterfly and insect museum, with thousands of perfectly preserved butterflies on display. When you enter the climate controlled domes you will be surrounded by an abundance of different coloured species, all flying around and confidently settling on your head and arms and landing on the flowers and plants.

Tip: Butterflies are attracted to white clothes!

Each dome is decorated with flower displays and nectar plants to feed the butterflies, and the butterfly glass house will give you the chance to witness the miraculous lifecycle of the butterfly species as it goes through the metamorphosis. 

Open every day from 9am to 6pm. Entrance is Dhs 50 per person (tickets purchased at the entrance) and free of charge for the disabled and kids below 2 years. Call +9714-4228902, email info@dubaimiraclegarden.com or visit www.dubaibutterflygarden.com.
