During our recent stay, we decided to visit the butterflies during a rainy day. It was an amazing experience. Butterflies are everywhere, flying all around you! You didn't have to find them, they found you! This attraction takes less than an hour but definitely worth it. If I go back to Key West, I will visit here again.

After a short intro video and some facts presented on posters in a small room, you step into the butterfly conservatory. It was exhilarating and it took... More

How cool! Soon as you walk in you learn alot about butterflies. Then you go through the set of doors into a garden filled with butterflies fluttering all around you. They looked so perfect i thought they were fake. This is great for all ages from 1 to 92.

We went to the butterfly conservatory to initially kill some time and loved it so much that we went through multiple times. What a peaceful beautiful place. The butterflies are breathtaking but there is also lush greenery a pair of flamingos and quite a few other exotic birds. Take your time and sit or stand for a while. You will... More

If you are a person who likes to see a variety of butterflies than this is the place for you. You can wonder around in the conservatory all day if that is your pleasure. They have very unique butterflies and a few other animals as well. They are military friendly so make sure that you have your military ID on... More

Went here at my wife's request, thought I would be board but it was pretty cool. I'd describe it as mesmerizing with all the butterflies and little ground birds. It's one of thoughs things you have to do once.

This was a magical experience. A must see if you are into butterflies and nature. I loved it. You have to walk very carefully because there are other birds and sometimes butterflies on the ground. The gift shop is filled with beautiful things to buy. I would go back to visit again and again.

I felt that the $13 to get in was high and the fact it was so small and not air-conditioned made it most uncomfortable
