“A great way to enjoy some of Nature's loveliest creature's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is a wonderful opportunity ! There are so many butterflies for you to enjoy here that you cannot fail to get pictures if you want them. It is very hot and humid inside, but it is well worth it to encounter (yes, up close and personal as they sit on you)many varieties of butterflies. The Conservancy has put out all kinds of fruit stations which attract the butterflies and give you lots of viewing experiences. Move slowly! There is a coupon available in most coupon books or as a separate card which can be found at any visitor's center on the way down or at your hotel. Enjoy-- we did!

“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Lots of beautiful butterflies, a nice store. A worthwhile stop while in Key West. Try to time it when the cruise ships aren't in or can be crowded.

“Butterfly delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Who would ever expect a butterfly zoo? That's essentially what this Conservatory is. You go into a greenhouse and encounter thousands of butterflys, some of which will come to rest on you, are not scared of humans, and enable you to take some great photos. We sat for half an hour inside the greenhouse both to rest and to watch the colorful butterflys, including one that alighted on my wife and stayed there for the half hour. There are numerous tropical plants in the greenhouse which, together with the butterflys, make for a very colorful and restful place to visit.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

This was one of my favorite things we did in Key West. It's a must see if you are in town! There was way more butterflys than I had expected. It was a great experience, and it;s definatley worth going.
