“Lovely place to visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We walked here from our cruise ship. It's well worth the visit. The butterflies were lovely especially the blue ones! Watch out for the huge moths - photos uploaded. Shop afterwards is lovely too. About 15 minutes from ship down Duval St.

“neat place to check out if you are near by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This was a pretty neat place to visit since I was in the area. I wouldn't necessarily go way out of your way to visit, but if you are in the area, this is a must stop. Not only were there plenty of butterflies, but there were also some birds walking around, as well as some huge gold fish (swimming not walking) :-)

“Beautiful and Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Wonderful place to go to relax among the butterflies and tropical plants. There is also a pond with amazing fish, turtles, exotic birds, and miniature quails. Although relatively small, there are places to sit down and just enjoy the serenity of the place while soothing music plays in the background. Also, for the learner, prior to entering the conservatory, informational videos and reading material is provided. Overall, great place to visit and relatively cheap with a coupon.

“Beautiful Butterflies (and Birds)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Visited here on a gorgeous Key West morning not knowing what to expect. It was beautiful. There are many varieties of butterflies, some beautiful birds - look closely - a stream that runs through the center, gorgeous foliage, even some turtles. Make sure to take a camera. You are walking among the buttterflies and some might land on you! Lovely gift shop with very helpful staff.
