Encased in 3 big domes, the indoor butterfly refuge is climate-controlled so that the butterflies can survive but also so it can be available to visitors throughout the year. As a treat, visitors can interact with the butterflies.
There are friendly staff who can teach you to properly handle these beautiful winged creatures. Kids will enjoy this experience with nature because butterflies gladly perch anywhere, including a kid’s finger! In addition, you don’t need to worry about food as there are cafeterias and cafes in the vicinity. Indeed, this place is a place where locals and tourists can converge in peaceful awe of the surroundings.
Butterfly Museum and Butterfly Flower Park
Once you are done with the garden, you can also visit the Butterfly Museum and Butterfly Flower Park. The park is outside of the domes and is a real life canvass of beauty with 50 million flowers cascaded over sculptures. The entire garden covers 1,800 square meters and can accommodate 300 visitors. This means it is an entire expanse of nature in its different personalities. Coincidentally, this attraction is beside Miracle Garden, most appropriate as we consider vibrant phenomena in the sandy desserts of Dubai.
