“Butterflies!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We did not go on the tour, but crusing around the well stocked gift shop was a treat in itself. The staff was helpful and genuinely interested in our quest to find something of a black/white butterfly for special family purpose. While they didn't have one, they did find an article that helped and they were touched by the story we shared as to the reason for our search. Got several gifts there for family members..Quality items, and staff!

“Key West Butterfly”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Coming from South Texas this was a great experience. As you walk in, it is like you are walking in a fairy tale movie. Beautiful butterflies!! This is a must when visiting Key West.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

This was my second time coming here and it was just as magical as the first time. Not only do they have butterflies but they also have beautiful birds, koi fish and turtles. The butterflies will even land on you which they say is good luck. They also let you come and go once you pay admission for the day. You can go through the aviary as many times as you want or just sit in the many benches provided inside.

“Take your time”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

In addition to the butterflies there are also 27 varieties of unusual tropical birds, making this a terrific place to take photos. The added attraction of the birds made this the best butterfly garden we have visited (of six). The plantings are also very nice. It's not very big, but we stayed for more than 2 hours because we got absorbed in taking pictures. If you can score a spot on one of the few benches to sit for a while, you'll see a tremendous variety of birds and butterflies. It's very hot in summer, a greenhouse-like environment, but they stamp your hand so you can go cool off in the extensive gift shop as needed and go back to the butterfly garden. Look for coupons for a couple of dollars off the price of admission at hotel desks and in tourist magazines around Key West.

“Way too cool!!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I felt like a little kid when I walked into the conservatory. It was so fun to see the butterflies all over the place. The birds were also good. I took a ton of pictures there! My husband got some excellent video on his camera. It was well worth the visit.
