With a coupon was only $10, there are thousands of butterflies enclosed in a tropical jungle, fish and birds including two large courting Flamingos! One the better gift shops at the end, it's near the southern most monument you want your photo taken by.

This was a bright and colorful attraction. Lots of butterflies, plants, pink flamingos. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so and near the Southern Most Point.

A very relaxing escape from the craziness of Duval St.! Highly recommend a visit. Not rushed, places to sit and watch the butterflies everywhere. One landed on my husband's back and another on his nose! Rhett and Scarlett, the resident flamingos, were loud and entertaining. Birds and turtles observed. Small space, but good movie introduction and pretty conservatory!

This is a truly unique experience not to be missed! Where else can you go and have butterflies land on your shoulder? It is quiet and peaceful. A great place to go and get away from stress for awhile.

The walk through the conservatory was very relaxing. Despite being rather busy they managed the crowds well. The birds and butterflies were beautiful

My family and I have been to a handful of butterfly conservatories and I must say the one at Key West has been the best. While small in foot print, it showed large in content and layout. We had an infant child and it worked well. We did not feel rushed or crowded during our visit on a Saturday morning.... More

It is a pricey yet cool place to visit. It can get crowded but your children will enjoy the little garden and the tons of beautiful butterflies. The store is full of items and can get overwhelming. Enjoyable on a rainy day in the keys.

Quietest place on Duval. What a nice break from the heat & humidity of a Key West afternoon as well as the crowds. Nicely set up with an introduction to butterflies with displays and videos. Then you can leisurely wander through the Reserve taking as many pictures of the resident butterflies as well as the very entertaining flamingos Rhett &... More

I went here my first day in Key West first thing in the morning. The butterflies and birds were great and I loved the landscaping. The music too is soothing. This is well worth the admission cost.

Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory was very fun. Good for all ages. The Tropical Bird sanctuary was very interesting and fun as the birds would fly from hand to hand. It was well worth the visit.
