Small area, but don't rush through. Take time to look for more than butterflies. There are also several species or beautiful birds, several turtles, flamingos, and various types of plants. If you take children, PLEASE control them so they do not run or grab at things. There are small birds walking all over the walkways that could be stepped on,... More

What a variety of butterflies from around the world. Staff was very knowledgeable and took time to point out things we might have missed. Loved watching a staff member open box of butterfly chrysalis, then hang them on drying rack until they open. The whole process was just amazing. Don't forget to browse through the gift shop before you leave.... More

My hubby said no way was he going, but we had time to kill and he gave in..and had a great time as apparently he's a butterfly magnet (or at least his blue shorts are). It was very peaceful, lots of fluttering butterflies and some cute little quail babies and two loving flamingos. definitely a fun things for kiddies too!

Our family thought this was a very neat place. Great for families with kids but all ages will enjoy. Hundreds (maybe thousands) of tropical and colorful butterflies all around you.

I never thought having butterflies flying around could make you feel so at peace and related but that is exactly how we felt. Absolutely the most beautiful experience you can have. Not only the beauty of the butterflies but the plants and birds will have you saying awe. Worth every penny to visit. A must see if you visit Key... More

If you love butterflies, this is the place to visit. If you don't love butterflies, when you leave you will. They are everywhere and it is truly an amazing site.

For a half hour or more you can experience a tropical garden with beautiful flowers and butterflies. Hard to believe the only live for about 10 days. Be sure to wear bright colors they are attracted to you and perhaps they will land on you for a ride.

I love butterflies and have an extensive butterfly garden at home. Still, this was a lovely place to watch beautiful exotic butterflies flit and float above and around you. The two resident flamingoes are the prettiest I've seen -- and I live in Florida. There are also a variety of other birds in the conservatory, beautiful, vibrant birds which are... More

Beautiful Butterfly Garden and flora. Sit on a bench along the pathway and watch all the butterflies flutter around you and even land on you sometimes! Great Family Fun!
