“It Will Be Your Favorite!”

Don't leave Key West without going to Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. It's a magical place where butterflies flutter by your face and land on your head or shoulder. You instantly feel like a child again!

“Most amazing butterfly conservatory I've seen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been to several butterfly conservatoriums and always think they're nice but this place was like nothing I'd ever seen. There were *so* many butterflies. They were everywhere. There were also some really cute tiny birds (zebra finches) in the trees and on the ground they had button quail running about on the ground. They were all adorable. There was a card available for $2 to identify the butterflies in the conservatorium, but there were way more butterflies in there than there were on the card.

If you think butterflies are beautiful, you will definitely want to check this out. The smaller children that came with there parents were so mesmerized with all the butterflies, they were actually just kind of silent and watching everything. I guess butterflies have those effects on people. :)

“puts stained glass to shame”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

very beautiful, well laid out butterfly conservatory. nice intro film before entry. good gift shop. the butterflies are literally everywhere - i had one land on my head, one on my friends head and another on her shirt. this is a magic garden with many different types of butterflies, birds and plants. employees are usually near and very knowledgeable and friendly. great pit stop in hectic key west. don't go without your camera.

Amazing--butterflies and flying free everywhere! I went back again the same day to take more photos of these gorgeous creatures. My favorite place in Key West.

“So many butterflies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Beautiful experience. More than that half of the gift shop carries conserved butterflies in plexiglass boxes for sale; the only souvenir I bought on my trip and I'm really happy with it. (The other half of the gift shop is the usual plastic neon colored souvenirs.)
