“One of the best attractions in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This is something you have to experience to believe. Seeing birds flying, Butterflies landing on you, the variety of species and their colors, amazing!!! This is a do not miss attraction to which I take everyone who visit us from somewhere else. I never tire of being there and seeing such splendid beauty. The gift shop is filled with such variety that I do my gift giving shopping there as well. You will be pleasantly surprised.

“A beautiful paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

This was a great experience, and well worth the price. The butterflies were amazing, but the real stars in my opinion were the qual! They had great personalities. Since the place is smaller than say, the one in Boca Raton, it is a more intimate experience and the butterflies come much closer.

The gift shop is a must see as well, with some very good prices and lovely young ladies working there!

Don't miss it!

“Do not skip this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

For only $12, this attraction was worth every cent. This butterfly conservatory is loaded with beautiful butterflies, birds, turtles and fish. It is not a very big space, but the setting also allows visitors to truly get up close to the butterflies. I was able to take a lot of wonderful pictures. The staff there is also very friendly and more than happy to answer all your butterfly questions. I went twice in two days because it was so beautiful and relaxing that I simply could not resist a return visit. They sell the last ticket at 4 PM and close by 5 PM. Be sure not to miss it!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We took a cruise for our honeymoon, and it stopped in KW. We actually had the time to make it to the Butterfly Museum. It did not disappoint. The butterflies and birds are beautiful, and it is such a serene place to be. It is a nice walk through experience, and a lot to be learned along the way. I will definately do this again on my next trip.
