A new exhibition, Wings of Scale, focussing on butterfly and moth collection at Weston Park, part of the Museums Sheffield, is currently running until 30th March.

Collecting butterflies and moths has always been a popular pastime, and as a result, the museum collection is full of them.

The collection is regarded an important source of historic and scientific information.

This new display at Weston Park shows the beauty and diversity of butterflies and moths from all over the world, highlighting their importance for the wellbeing of any eco-system.
