“Worth seeing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We visited the Butterfly conservatory on a whim after stopping there on the City Trolley tour during our Dec 19, 2012 cruise stop in Key West. (The trolley driver gave us a $2.00 off coupon making the cost of admission only $10 each.) My youngest son (19) wanted to see it, but my oldest son(22) wasn't as keen on it. However since this was a family vacation, everyone decided to go along for the visit. Well, even my oldest son was mesmerized as we opened the door into a butterfly fantasy! I thought I had stepped into Disney movie. Hundreds of multi-colored butterfly were fluttering above our heads. As we wandered along the brick paths among flowering plants and trees, butterflies continued to dazzle us with their dance in flight. One landed on my youngest's head and another on my oldest's back! The conservatory offered numerous photo ops with its luscious tropical foliage as a backdrop. We even saw a butterfly emerge from his chrysalis in the "butterfly nursery". This was definitely the top of the highlight list of Key West attractions. If you are doubtful about liking this, just go and see for yourself. Even my skeptic son loved it! :-)

Such a beautiful tranquil place! Don't try to rush through it. There is activity everywhere you look, and many great photo opportunities.

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

I wasn't expecting soo many butterflies and beautiful plants. It was well worth the money. I put this off on my last couple of trips to Key West and wish i had gone sooner.
