If you love butterflies this is the place for you. So many different kinds of butterflies that fly all around you throughout the Conservatory. Also very lush and tropical surrounding with 2 pink flamingos.

I have done other butterfly conservatories before and this is the best one so far. Many butterflies, lots of cute small birds, and the plants were interesting. They also play soundscape music which makes this such a chill place to sit and relax. My daughter loved it.

I had been here 15 years ago, and we dropped in again on this visit. I love this place not only did they have the normal butterfly house selection but they had Atlas moth caterpillars and a freshly hatched Comet moth. Bucket list bugs for someone like me. Thank you!

It's a very small conservatory, but worth the price of admission. There is an abundance of butterflies that consistently fly around you and the vegetation is beautiful. They stamp your hand so you can re-enter through out the day if you so choose.

From the moment you enter into the garden, the butterflies are breathtaking. As you venture through, you may notice there is more than expected. There are also beautiful tropical birds, flamingos and turtles. This is Paradise!

We've been coming here since our eldest was less than 2 years old... and it never ceases to amaze and awe the entire family! Butterflies of all ilk are up close and personal, and the setting is gorgeous... tranquility and magic in the middle of Key West. Hope to come back during every Key West visit!!

Gorgeous butterflies and a beautiful conservatory. You could go through this attraction in as little as half an hour, or sit on a bench and watch the butterflies flit around for hours like I did. Hubby had to move me along, I was perfectly content to sit all day!

Its a far walk from the harbor. A lot farther than I thought. We didn't get to spend much time here... as we had to get back to our ship. (we were with a cruise). Lots of butterflies. Not a lot of variety. A couple of cool birds.

I love visiting zoos and nature centers so this was the one place I really wanted to see. If you like butterflies and birds, this is for you. I suggest looking in the guidebooks they have for coupons and look in more than one book. We had a $2 off per person coupon and afterwards found a buy one get... More
