It is interesting if you have time and its not very expensive. It is a well organized and taken care place, though not it such a big place. It has also an interesting shop around butterflies.

Worth an hour visit while you're walking around the strip. Great thing to do if the weather is lousy. (not that that happens very often in KW). We love it there.

This was such a magical, amazing stop! We spent an hour in here and when camera batteries ran dry, we went back to the B&B to recharge them and came back for another hour! Worth the stop and it is the most peaceful stop and so magical!

This was not the first time we stopped at the Key West Butterfly and Nature conservatory on Duval Street. It is very nicely done, and a joy to visit. They also have a small gift shop near Mallory Square, and the staff is always friendly and very pleasant to talk to. You can tell they love their job.

This place is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. It is hard to describe because it was such feeling once you walked in, but instantly I felt at peace.

They had a nice video presentation that was very informative. We enjoyed the hundreds of butterflies that seemed to be everywhere as well as the flamingos and other little birds. Worth a stop, The gift shop had a good selection of items to purchase.

This is a must for adults and children. Hundreds of butterflies of various sizes and hues. A few little birds and two flamingos are quietly walking around.
