Beautiful greenery, birds are gorgeous and the butterflies land on you while your walking your tranquil walk. Turtles, and the Flamingo's are the most beautiful . A must visit if you are in Key West!

This is a must see if in Key West! We went through twice because we were afraid we missed something the first time. Inexpensive and great for all ages.

We live in Key West and visit the Butterfly Museum at least 3-4 times a year. It’s a magical place for kids and adults alike. You have the feeling of walking into a 3-D movie. Very touching experience.

When first walking into the atrium, there were all of these butterflies fluttering through the air. The color was gorgeous and so emotionally moving. This is a must see.

They are open year round. It is sweltering humid and hot in there.

If they are the 2 green birds, I don't think so. They were primarily in a tree by the exit door and I never saw them with young or really concerned about anything but the people trying to get a good picture of them.
