Truly enjoyed my interactive walk through the lush tropical garden at this Conservatory. So many beautiful butterflies and colorful birds. It's a nature lover/photographer's dream. Very well done and the gift shop/artwork has stunning items for sale.

Went here with my the extended family and had a great time. The flamingos were making a great racket! Lovely to watch. There was a large amount of different butterflies all around. Had one land on my hat and decide I was a good way to get around. All in all a nice time had by all. Ages from 50's... More

This is a spot that is well worth the stop. Check out the coupons they have in many publications that will save you a few bucks. The flamingos were stunning and the butterflies will take your breath away with how beautiful they are.

Lovely small oasis in Key West. I know, sounds like an oxymoron, but after dealing with the various groups of Duval Street goofballs or the Loud Shirt parade from the latest cruise ship, you'll want to take a break and watch the butterflies.

This was a very calming and beautiful experience! Rhett and Scarlet the flamingos were beautiful also. There are baby quails just born. Very much worth visiting!

What a beautiful experience. My kids loved it. They had a first experience to see them so close. I am glad I took them there. Five Star.

Everyone should visit here while in Key West. It is just a wonderful experience. Each time I have visited there have been different types, and colors of butterflies. The store has some unique gifts.

A very nice respite from the heat. Beautiful butterflies flitting around and landing on you! Look for discount coupons pretty much everywhere!
