Butterflies are Heartwarming!

This is such a wonderful experience, everyone should go visit. To walk in a place with butterflies flying around you is undesirable. The peace you find there is fabulous.

It was adorable, it's stacked with butterflies and they have these two flamingos. It's cute and not expensive, you can get 2 bucks off from one of those coupon books you find around the island.

I really like this place. A variety of butterflies, birds, and flamingos coexisting in a very well kept and nice environment. A plus for young children interested in science

A visit to Key West without stopping by here would be a huge mistake. As you enter you will be surrounded by butterflies, birds and if you are lucky, two beautiful pink flamingos. There is no way to describe standing in one place and having a butterfly or two land on you. Awesome attraction, the staff is wonderful and very... More

Very neat place to visit once but then "over it". There are many beautiful and all different butterflies to see however the sticker price to see them is way too high in my opinion. After all they are only butterflies.

I have long been a butterfly lover. They are such beautiful creatures. I was so excited to visit the Key West Butterfly Conservatory and it did not disappoint! So many different species -- oh the colors!! There are also a few different types of birds, including 2 flamingos! There is a great gift shop as you arrive -- the prices... More

When I first walked in I saw the gift shop, I thought "okay here we go, tourist trap....". They asked us to "be quiet, don't touch, watch where you step and check yourself for butterflies before you exit"...Opened the door to the conservatory and WOW!!! Just plain and simple WOW!! Gorgeous butterflies were everywhere you looked--fluttering and perched. 100 different... More

We finally got the opportunity to visit here on our recent 3rd visit to Key West. It's a small conservatory, and takes maybe 15-20 minutes to get through, but you will certainly not be in any hurry to leave. Beautiful with the butterflies all around you, as well as a few other animal friends. Staff were helpful and answered questions... More
