Hammarby Slussväg 20, Stockholm, Sweden, 118 60

Located in Hagaparken, in the northern part of Stockholm, you will find Fjäril och Fågelshuset (the Butterfly and Bird House). This is an interesting place for people of all ages. Once inside, your first visit would be through a greenhouse garden with a beautiful collection of plants, trees, and fish. From there you can enter the exciting bird house. The constant stream of humans has not deterred the birds or forced them into the reclusion of their trees and shrubs. Rather, they are bold and loud, shrieking and flying about, or they walk around on the ground, sometimes forcing people to walk around them. Then there is the Butterfly Room which is magical. They are lovely and you get to witness their genesis at the cocoon and larva display. On the other side of the gallery and café, is a Japanese garden filled with hummingbirds. The best time to visit would be during the colder, darker months.
