Papiliorama has a collection of floras and faunas divided into different zones; tropical jungle, insects, butterfly and nocturnal. My favorite is the butterfly habitat.

We visited the place in March 2017. The papiliorama offers several green houses which are connected between each other and display a large collection of plants, animals and insects. It's a great place to visit with kids.
