Entopia started off as a butterfly farm and is today more than triple it's original size. Filled with life butterflies, insects and reptiles it is indeed one of the must visit attractions in Penang. It's appealing to both the young and old.
Imagine nature’s largest classroom and discovery hub, where butterflies and insects are free to come out and play. Within Entopia lies two worlds; The Natureland living outdoor gardens and The Cocoon indoor discovery centre. Over 150 species of fauna and more than 200 species of flora are being showcased throughout Entopia’s entire exhibition.
The Natureland, which is a living garden vivarium, is a shared ecological space for a variety of animals from invertebrates and reptiles living in their re-created natural habitat. It is the one of the largest butterfly garden in Malaysia with approximately 15,000 free-flying butterflies at any one time consisting of up to 60 species. The living garden features more than 200 species of plants with waterfalls, ponds, caves and other artistic garden features. Be sure to stroll along the mezzanine-terrace from David’s Garden and get a majestic view of our Home Tree.
The Cocoon features two floors of learning exhibition and indoor activities. This indoor discovery centre is designed to let visitors self-explore the world of invertebrates through various interactive edu-stations. Besides the walk-through experience, visitors will also be guided to participate in fun hands-on learning activities. The entire Cocoon itself is also a state-of-the-art facility where the visitor experience is enhanced by technology guided interpretations. Some of its exciting attractions include the Pandora Forest, Metamorphosis, Lumino City, Downtown Entopia, Breeding Ground, Underground Mysteries and Understory Tales.
Highly recommended for people of all age. A superb job by the staff of Entopia to make the park it is today.
— Most educational if not eye opening session
Took the kids here for the afternoon after reading some reviews....so glad we did as it's amazing, so many different butterflies just flying all around you. If your in Georgetown then take the bus (101 or 102) it goes straight there and costs you 4 ringgit.
— Amazing butterfly farm
We thought this was just a butterfly farm but it was so much more. It has just been redesigned and it is clean and modern. There is a clear way to walk around so that you don't miss anything. There are snakes, lizards, beetles and of course butterflies. Just when you think you have finished there is a large exhibition upstairs. This is a must visit place!
— Great experience
Visited to Entopia after they renovated. Love the staff there, they are so nice and friendly. They open up more section for dragonfly it was so lovely. Definetely will re-visit again soon!
— Time travel to chilhood memories
— Informative and Educational for both the young and old
This is really worth visiting. You can easily spend a couple of hours here, viewing all there is to see. There are many reptiles and insects as well as butterflies. The beautiful butterflies are flying freely within the huge domes and I've not seen anything like this elsewhere. The park is well set out and has all the usual facilities you would expect.
— A must visit for nature lovers
Awesome!!! Great!!! Friendly staff, the environment is so calm, beautiful...
It's a very beautiful place. My kids learned a lots about butterflies, frogs, snake, and other animals. We even don't know that the cutest frog was a poison frogs, thanks to Shirley our tour guide she explained and answered all our questions. All the staffs are so friendly. We plan to visit this place again with my husband.
I used to frequent the butterfly farm as a child, when my family & I used to visit Penang. So returning as an adult with my partner was very nostalgic. It has certainly changed a lot since I was small, it has pretty much almost quadrupled in size since back then. There is much more to see. It was amazing being so close to so many butterflies & being lucky enough for some to even land us as well so we could have a closer look at their beauty.
— Wonderful trip to nature
Its located about 40 minutes from Georgetown. Great place for bugs lovers. I'm not a big fan of the creatures but the way this indoor park was setup is really impress me. They have hundreds of creatures. It was entertaining and I gain lots of information particularly on a butterfly life cycle. It was great for the kids! You dont have to worry about the Malaysian heat as this is an indoor park. The ticket we bought valid in a single day. Which means you can get out and come back again in a same day. We bought the ticket online with has a discount on it. If you have kids, bring them. There are lots of other eminities inside like restaurant, prayer room, toilets, baby changing room, etc..
