Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park (Malay: Taman Rama Rama Kuala Lumpur) is a large public butterfly zoo in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is a popular tourist attraction in the country. It is located adjacent to the Lake Gardens and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park. The butterfly park houses many species that are local to the country.

Spanning over 80,000 square feet of landscaped garden with over 5,000 butterflies, exotic plants, butterfly-host plants and ferns, it is one of the largest houses in the world.[1] The park also houses an exhibition area with information on butterflies and other insects, and offers a souvenir store for tourists at the end of the tour.

Insect museum[edit]

There is an impressive collection of massive beetles, beautifully camouflaged stick insects in vivariums and other creepy crawlies.[2]

The park is accessible within walking distance west of Pasar Seni station of Rapid Rail's Kelana Jaya Line.
