Upon opening in 1986, the Penang Butterfly Farm was the first butterfly farm anywhere in the tropics, more than just a tourist attraction, it is a butterfly sanctuary, conservation and research center.
Effectively, a 'live' museum where you can enjoy and marvel at over 4,000 rare, endangered and indigenous butterflies. Learn about butterfly and insect conservation, the threat to their habitats and the fragile aspect of nature as well as enjoying their unique & beautiful colours.
