the butterflies are great, but it underwhelmed us- not really engaging enough for my son and me for the price...

“Have everything "butterfly".”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Visited the conservatory a few yrs ago and it was wonderful. The gift shop is a bit pricy But they have just about anything you would want related to butterflys.

“Magical Encounter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

As Donna W mentioned, the minute you pass through the doors into the Conservatory... you'll be taken a back. It is obvious that much effort has been put forth to create a sustaining ecosphere for all of the conservatory's inhabitants... namely the many species of butterfly, plant life, birds, turtles, and even a pair of wild pink flamingos that were once native to the region. Near the exhibit's conclusion is a kind-of-butterfly-nursery where the chrysalis' are promoted. Bring your good camera as there is so much to photograph! The Conservatory is very close to the Southernmost Point photo-op (block a away). Definitely a must stop for the Key West visitor.
