This place was amazing, not surprising given the great TA reviews. Entry was about $12, though our group all got in for $9 due to our military member. You enter and have a large room of information exhibits to learn about much of what you'll see, then enter the butterfly room itself. This is a twisted walkway where you can... More

Loved it! The opportunities to get some good pictures were plenty. I have been to few butterfly conservatories but this one takes the cake. It is smaller than most I have been to but the abundance of butterflies makes up for it. The staff is very knowledgable and willing to teach. The birds that they have in there are adorable.... More

The butterflies in this exhibit are beautiful! It's a great stop in Key West. The tour was long enough to provide information, but not so long you wanted to escape. The birds were a nice surprise.

We've been to Key West many times over the years & somehow had not been to the Butterfly Conservatory. We wished we had gone sooner! Gorgeous & peaceful. Highly recommend for couples and families.

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!
