The first words out of our mouths was wow when we opened the door and went inside. There were butterflies everywhere! Beautiful facility, the birds were a special addition to the exhibit. I would highly recommend if you have never been to a butterfly conservatory. We have visited others which kind of took something away from this visit. One tip,... More

Best time to visit is during the early morning when they first open. This is the time the butterflies are most active. A large variety of different butterflies. Enjoyed and would recommend a visit. Very close to The Reach hotel and the Southernmost landmark.

It was raining when we visited it's an indoor attraction so best for rainy days! It's inexpensive and I think were in there around 20 minutes. The butterfly area is stunning and the butterflies are lovely however Its very small, crowded and hot so I wouldn't plan to spend more than half an hour there

I had never visited a butterfly garden and it really wasn't on my list of things to do but after reading about it we decided to give it a try.

My favorite stop I'm Key West. I felt like I had entered heaven and stayed for a good hour. There are also birds, turtles and birds. This conservatory is so well done.
