Al Noor Island Butterfly House

Enjoy the visual beauty of 500 species of butterflies along with the scientific descriptions about each species’ and their natural habitat.

A haven for more than 500 jewel-coloured creatures, the Butterfly House is one of Sharjah’s most striking structures. A veil of perforated steel glows in the sunlight and is spectacularly lit at night, creating an ever-changing show of light and shadow inside the temperature-controlled space.

Follow the boardwalk through the tropical gardens into the exotic Butterfly house, then stop for lunch at the organic café and take home a souvenir from the gift shop.
