Visited around opening time (9am) and that was a good choice. Didn't take long to start filling up. There were many, many butterflies; more than I anticipated. You have to be careful walking around because they are literally everywhere. They land on you and fly right in front of you. They are beautiful--many colors and variations. There are also exotic...

We have been coming to Key West for about 20 years and have never been here before. It is well worth the stop and you can see the whole place in about an hour. They have a large variety of butterflies as well as a number of birds. It is also a good place that get out of the heat.... More

This is an interesting place for people who like butterflies and birds. It is full of them. It has a nice little stream with 2 rescued flamingos. Wildlife biology folks would have a field day here.

What adult male would want to go to a butterfly conservatory? Having been there, I guess me. My family and I chose to make this one of our stops. Not really knowing what to expect from a butterfly conservatory we were pleasantly surprised. Once inside we were immediately calmed buy relaxing music and the flutter of butterflies All around us.... More

I dont know if my wife, aunt and uncle would agree, but I didn't find this to be all that interesting. Lots of pretty butterflies, though and a couple of cool Flamingos.

I so enjoy these butterfly gardens where there are 100s of these gentle silent creatures flitting around. So amazing to watch so much beauty. This conservatory also has two very entertaining flamingos. This place is very well done. Of course there's a very nice gift shop at the end.
