Oh what a great place to visit and kids of all ages will love it! The Butterfly Conservatory is beautifully maintained and the plants, butterflies, flowers and birds are gorgeous. There is soft classical music in the background and 2 chatty flamingos in the middle area. Prior to entering the Conservatory, you are welcome to watch a short movie about... More

We went to the butterfly gift store and it was great! we have been going there every time we make it to Key West and just started our own butterfly collection this last time. They explain where the butterflies come from (which are farms, not the wild) and what each butterfly is that you are purchasing. Great prices and craftsmanship... More

I loved everything about this place! Butterflies everywhere and nice soothing classical music to mellow out with. I thought the flamingos, Scarlett and Rhett, were beautiful but I did feel a little sorry with their small (but beautiful) enclosure. I would recommend this place to anyone, but especially those who need some chill time in busy Key West. Coupons available... More

This place is absolutely breathtaking. From the over confident pink flamingos to the beautiful butterflies that land right on your shoulders. Cannot say enough about this place. It is a self guided tour and you can take as much time as you need to take in the millions of butterflies. Can't wait to visit again.

Enjoyed seeing all the butterflies and birds. If you have time to sit for a while and just watch things go by do so. They have some really nice jewelry and stunning flights in the second gift shop room.

My husband and I both enjoy butterflies and nature in general. We knew we wanted to check it out but it was so much better than we were expecting. There were tons of beautiful butterflies flying all around you and some very pretty birds. If you are ever in this area, this is a must!!! It was only $12 a... More

Just a beautiful place to visit. The butterflies are stunning. We were fortunate enough to get a private tour booked by our hotel staff, and it made it even better.

Loved this place! Didn't expect so many butterflies! Probably wouldn't go again on our next trip to Key west but it was definitely worth the price of admission.
