About this event

Join us for a day of activities celebrating beautiful butterflies.

In the morning enjoy some family-friendly talks with expert Richard ‘Bugman’ Jones, discover the differences between butterflies and moths, and get a close up look at some examples from our collections.

In the afternoon join the ‘Bugman’ down on our Nature Trail and take part in the nation’s Big Butterfly Count using spotter sheets and sweeper nets.

Times and further activities to be announced.

The Nature Trail is located about a 15-minute walk from the main Museum. You can pick up a map of the Museum and Gardens from the Ticket Desk
