If Heaven really truly existed...I think this is what it would look like. Gorgeous butterflies. One of the nicest attractions we saw in Key West. Peaceful. Beautiful.

beautiful experience. the place and its shop are both very charming. I kept the paper butterfly you get for the admissions as a ticket to wear in my car to remind me of this amazing place. It is still there, which in turn, reminds me I have to go back as soon as possible.

Quiet and serene. True nature at its best. We sat and had the butterflies all around us. Much more than we ever expected..

anytime we are in Key West, we go to the butterfly place. It is so beautiful to walk amongst all the butterfly. Each time we visit the gift shop and bring home a piece of butterfly art. This is a great place to come with family

As soon as you step into the enclosure you are met by dozens of different kind of butterflies. The butterflies are literally everywhere and easy to photograph. To set the mood they have New Age music playing in the background. This is something you shouldn't miss!

We loved it so much we went twice (Tickets are good for the entire day). It is also a great place to buy souvenirs.

Do not miss this. So peaceful and beautiful! Butterflies & birds fly freely. Go early in the morning as it could get really warm in the afternoon.

You wouldn't be able to imagine the feeling of having butterflies flying all around you, until you've been in a place like this. It just puts a constant smile on your face throughout the whole stay. Didn't expect the experience to be this great!!

Absolutely stress free zone. Wear a bright color so the butterflies land on you. Do not forget your camera. You will not be disappointed.
