Butterfly Craft

Use your magnifying glass to get close up to a selection of butterflies and insects, and use our craft materials to decorate your own butterfly.

Hear about Alexander Macleay, the original owner of Elizabeth Bay House who once owned the greatest collection of butterflies Australia has ever seen, and see a similar collection of real butterflies during your visit to Elizabeth Bay House. Marvel at the wonderful array colours and types and be inspired to craft your own beautiful butterflies.

This free activity included with museum entry is perfect for little ones who are intrigued by science, insects and who enjoy crafting. Take a moment in the holidays to slow down and enjoy an outing to Elizabeth Bay House. Family-friendly tours are also available throughout the day.
