Any place that works hard at saving the environment gets my vote. They do great work here and have a great display. The butterflies are great, but they also have some other little animals inside. My favorite were the two rescued flamingos.

I have seen several butterfly exhibits in the Bronx Zoo (NYC), the American Museum of National History (NYC), Riverhead, Long Island (NY) and now, this one in Key West. All were wonderful. At The Butterfly and Nature Conservatory in Key West you will see beautiful Blue Morphos in flight amongst the other butterflies and moths in the exhibit. It is a very colorful and peaceful place to visit.

The Key West Butterfly Conservatory is most likely the best Butterfly Conservatory on the east coast. It contains so many live, free flying specimens that if you do not see at the minimum 100 butterfly specimens flying around at any point in time, then you either must be asleep or blind.

Even though my wife and I live in the Florida Keys, we go there at least once every few months to enjoy nature at its best, without having to drive hundreds of miles to find a place in nature that can compete with it.

If you want some time away from the bustle of crowds stop in to the conservatory but you won't be getting out of the heat since the atmosphere is kept humid for the creatures living there. If you like to take photos it is a great place to test your skills of trying to capture snaps of the variety of butterflies & birds. Bit on the pricey side for the short amount of time you spend there compared to other attractions.
