The butterfly house is amazing. It was so peaceful. The butterflies are everywhere. There is constant motion. We went through twice and saw butterflies we didn't see the first time through. There are also a few birds and other critters.

This is a cool experience! Well worth the price of admission. The person who recommended it to me described it as spiritual.

This was a fun, unique, and beautiful experience. I would definitely recommend visiting if you're in Key West. The conservatory was busy when we went, so maybe call ahead of time and see what times of day they might be less crowded to really get the most out of your time there.

Take the family. Great adventure and leaning experience for all. Don't forget to stop in the gift shop. Lots of interesting items that make unique gifts for those that did not make the trip with you.

We were amazed by the cocoon nursery, never seen anything like it before. Learned so much about butterflies without even realizing it. The gift store has many beautiful things, bought a great priced wind chime. A must see in Key West!!

This is a must stop when you visit Key West. The staff could not be more friendly and who can resist the beauty of God's Creations.
