What a fun experience. There aren't juat hundreds of butterflies but there are birds, turtles and plants. It was a beautiful, relaxing and educational visit! The staff was extremely nice, too! The gift shop has an extensive collection of butterfly items.

I loved this place. The staff was nice and helpful. The cost of admission is reasonable and our B&B staff gave us a coupon for $2 off admission. The butterflies and birds were beautiful. If you stand still, butterflies will land on you.

Loved the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. Well worth the small admission and you can spend as much time as you'd like while there. Beautiful butterflies flying all over and even landing on you.

The kids enjoyed walking through the conservatory. It was very short and we spent maybe 20-30 minutes. Don't plan for it to take up too much time!

We went with a 5 year old and a 1 year old. Both loved all the butterflies! It was warm inside as well to keep the butterflies regulated. So not a place to cool off but it was a great experience. Definitely recommended.

A nice stop in Key West. Not inexpensive, and the time you'll spend there is about the only thing shorter than the life of a butterfly, but you get a nice look, while strolling a small, lovely greenhouse-like sanctuary, at hundreds of butterflies, dozens of...More

Response from STrophia | Property representative |
We do allow pets in our Gift Shop and Gallery, but not into the Conservatory. We would gladly watch your pet in our admission desk so that you may feel free to stroll through the Conservatory at your own pace.
