Relaxing

Soft music and peace. Butterflys, turtles and flamingos. Sit and relax or take a nice stole through. Highly recommended it. Low impact and calming

It is a nice and small place. Nothing special. If you have time to spare, go. Butterflies fly around you and it is common to have then on your hands, on your head.

If you have a family, this is a must to do in Key West. The staff are great, and the conservatory is beautiful. Lots of interaction with hundreds of butterflies and many species.
