We were so amazed when we first entered the Butterfly Conservatory. It was so beautiful and peaceful with so many varieties of butterflies flying so close to us......a few actually landing on my husband's head. The conservatory had a tropical feel with many colorful flowers and foliage.....very lovely. Be prepared for the humidity, though!

This was an awesome experience. There are thousands of butterflys to view as well as some different birds. The butterflys were of different colors and really made for an great experience. The flamingos were also very interesting. I would recommend this to anyone who is in Key West.

This was a great place to visit. They're gift shop is almost as big as the venue itself. Worth the visit for sure.

Butterflies everywhere! we've been to butterfly conservatories before, but this was the best by far. The flamingos are gorgeous as well as all the birds. But by far the best all of the amazing colors and variety of butterflies. We were so captivated. Will definitely go back!

This place stood up to the really good reviews we saw before visiting. Good bike racks to park bikes if you are riding bicycles. Amazingly fast checkin process. We were just mesmerized with the colorful mix of butterflies to see, the flamingos were eye catching and the finches completed the visual feast. Loved the place and recommend it to people... More
