Just a walk away through the beautiful Haga park

Enjoy the unique experience of walking among exquisite colorful butterflies flying freely around you in a breath-taking exotic tropical environment. The Butterfly House Haga Ocean includes one of Scandinavia’s largest shark aquariums. Large and small reef sharks, as well as numerous exotic, colorful fish, swim together in the 30-meter long aquarium that holds 1.2 million liters of water.
During certain weekends and holidays, our zoologist Owe Sandström come and give an exciting presentation of the sharks.

Next presentation:
Unfortunately the presentations have been cancelled temporary due to Covid-19.

Read more about

The exhibition


Among waterfalls and rich vegetation, you will discover the wonders of nature. Discover the butterfly mating dance, see larvae enjoying all kinds of food and if you’re lucky, watch a butterfly hatch.

Some of the butterflies come here as pupae, and some butterflies spend their entire life cycle in the tropical environment at Haga.The Butterfly House covers over 3000 square meters and the environment inside is completely tropical. The temperature is never less than 25 degrees during the day, and at night it is always at least 18 degrees. The humidity is always high, and it is in these conditions that the butterflies thrive and multiply. During a single year, several thousand butterflies live here, and every time you visit us here there are at least 700 different varieties of butterfly species to see. Our butterflies are very exotic to our northern climes, while in their home environment they are relatively common.

There are no endangered butterfly species at The Butterfly House.


Discover the beauties of the sea in Haga Ocean Aquarium. Small and large reef sharks swim together with colorful tropical fish in the 30-meter long aquarium that holds 1,2 million liters of water. We have two shark species in our aquarium: The Black Tip reef shark which is the most common reef shark and The Sandbar shark which is the largest reef shark.

Come and see real shark very close. In proximity to the large aquarium there are several smaller saltwater aquariums with various fish, sea stars, sea urchins, corals and more. The cute clown fish is a favorite among the children. We also have an exhibition about The Great White shark- the real predator of the sea. In this exhibition you get to learn a lot about the mythical Great White for example geographical range, physiology, anatomy, history, protection and more.

On OCEARCH website you can see how sharks move around the world´s oceans. CLICK HERE to get to OCEARCH global shark tracking.


The purpose of the coral reefs at the Haga Ocean aquarium is to demonstrate a project we are working on to create new reefs of limestone-rock on land. What could be better and more environmentally friendly than using Mother Nature’s own materials, namely porous limestone to create man made reefs?

This type of limestone was formed a long time ago in the sea, primarily through corals abilities to absorb calcium and trace elements from seawater that the coral then turns into solid limestone. By adding back large amounts of limestone in the sea in a specific way, we can create new reefs that quickly become overgrown by algae, corals and biological life that are looking for a place to live and attach themselves to. Large amounts of crustaceans and fish move in too. These are amazing environments for young fry, for example, to live and grow up in.

There are a thousand good reasons why more reefs should be created when the coral reefs of tropical seas are the world’s most productive habitats for marine life. In addition to our projects and research, we believe that all people should be able to see and understand what a tropical reef is and what it looks like. As there are relatively few who dive in tropical waters, this is the perfect way to show children and adults how a coral reef might look like 7-8 meters below the surface with live reef sharks, shoals of fish, corals and algae.

At best, perhaps a visit here will encourage some of our visitors to develop an interest in the ocean and its inhabitants. It might even encourage some children to acquire a science degree and continue to work on issues related to marine life environments.

A Selection


We want to save the wild pollinators

Pollination meadows and bees

“At Haga, the butterfly can be seen making its green home amid misty frost and down” this is how it sounded when Carl Michael Bellman described the green areas of the Haga park in the famous 18 th -century ballad “Fjäriln vingad”. The situation of the Swedish pollinators is not as good today as it was before. The lush green areas where various pollinators live have decreased drastically. Humans are quite simply too good at maintaining green areas such as parks, meadows, lawns and gardens. Letting, for example, gardens grow wildly by themselves wecan help the survival of pollinators. The truth is that around one third of what humans eat stems from pollinators. To encourage the survival of pollinators, we at the Butterfly House Haga Ocean, have sprouted pollination meadows and butterfly paths. We have also brought tame bees.
