Crawl, climb, and fly through an interactive maze exhibit!

Amazing Butterflies, created by The Natural History Museum in London in collaboration with Minotaur Mazes, invites you to shrink down into the undergrowth to become one of the most extraordinary creatures on earth.

Embark on a challenging journey teeming with friends and foes revealing the unusual relationship between caterpillars, butterflies and their natural surroundings. Adventure through the leaves, learn how to move like a caterpillar, discover an ant that reaps the reward of an unusual friendship, then transform into a butterfly and take flight!

Together, families will explore this interactive experience and learn the surprising challenges butterflies face every day.

Enter the interactive maze through the huge monarch caterpillar tunnel. Become a caterpillar and find your way through a secret, wild world as grass and leaves tower above your head.

As you navigate the terrain filled with challenges around every twist and turn, take on puzzles, games and exciting interactives. The brave can even take to the air and soar down the butterfly zip slide.

You’ll discover fascinating facts about one of our planets most amazing life cycles. But beware. The maze includes dead ends, down which, lurks poisonous plants and predators waiting to pounce. Choose the right route, stamp your card along the way, and emerge as a beautiful butterfly.
