So worth the ten minute wait time learning about the butterflies and their surroundings. When you video the butterflies video them in slow motion, it breath taking

Amazing! My husband went a bit reluctantly, but loved it as much as I did. There is just enough information before you go into the butterfly exhibit itself to give you a sense of the life of a butterfly. When you open the doors, you are overwhelmed with butterflies! And several majestic, and talkative, flamingoes for good measure. You won't... More

Been here twice now. I always try to go early to beat crowds but the place is so calm and relaxing once your inside the Conservatory. Highly recommend visiting here if your visiting Key West.

After hitting the music bars every night, it was a nice switch to enjoy the peace of the butterfly conservancy. Adults and children will enjoy this -- teenage girls too. Mainly butterflies, but many birds and some lizards too.

This was the nicest place we visited on our trip to the keys. A definite place if you are visiting with children.

What a delightful place! You walk through the double doors, and into a magical world with gorgeous butterflies, flamingos, tropical plants and flowers. It's a peaceful respite from the crowds- and guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

Stop in and enjoy the calm. You begin with a little education on butterflies and end in a charming gift shop. Perfect for kids or anyone that wants to get close to butterflies.

We all loved this place and the retail store offers some very uniquely mounted pieces, etc. for purchase. The pink flamingos are a fun addition as are the cool little birds. We've been to other butterfly exhibits with more variety, but this was nice and priced reasonably for a resort town.

We took our three girls (12, 10 and 7) to the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservancy over Presidents' Day Weekend and we had no idea how cool it would be. Although the reviews are great, you really can't understand why until you step into this paradise garden for an hour on your own. Our visit was short but sweet,... More
