The butterfly art in the store is simply amazing! Shouldn't be missed! Great shop for that unusual gift for someone.

Did not expect much but was quite a surprize to see all the many different butterflies, including a few birds and baby quails.

When you walk into the Butterfly Conservatory you will enter a magical world of beauty with butterflies of all colors and sizes winging through the air all around you. Some may even visit you "personally" by landing on you briefly. Joining the butterflies in the conservatory are flamingoes, ground fowl, and more.

We found this while walking around and went in. It is a nice relaxing place. They have eat were you can just watch the butterflies going from flower to flower. If you are still chances are they will land on you. There are also small birds that are flying around. There is also an area where they are raising butterflies.... More

The butterfly place isn't huge. It won't take you hours to walk through. But what it will do is give you a little bit of respite from the craziness of Key West. I came with a $1 off per person voucher and the lady on the door said they had a new offer - $2 and promptly let me have... More

An amazing place and definitely worth the visit. I went first thing in the morning and there were fewer people and the butterflies were very active! With peaceful music and a large variety of butterflies and birds it was easy to just keep walking around trying to get pictures and watch nature at it's finest!

My daughter & I went to this Conservatory in August. There is a very interesting film on these butterflies in the first room. You then go through double doors out to this lovely atrium, filled with beautiful trees & plants and all of these gorgeous butterflies of all sizes and colors flitting all over the place! There is a little... More

The Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory is well worth a few dollars and an hour or so of your time while you are in Key West. The butterflies and other creatures are amazingly beautiful and plentiful! Their gift shop is also a great place to purchase kids souvenirs. They offer some really cute and educational things that are, IMHO,... More

This was an amazing place. For a small fee it offers a large return. The butterflies are plentiful and astounding as is the educational aspect. The gift shop is excellent and fairly priced. Take a break from the debauchery that can be Key West and check this out!
