This was our favorite part of our trip. Unlike anything you'll see other places and the pink flamingos (Rhett & Scarlet) will keep you entertained!

A wonderful place to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the butterflies. Families with young children really enjoyed their time in there, especially when they would land on them.

Do not sell yourself short of time at this rich oasis of not just butterflies, but lush vegetation and birds. We wished we had planned more time to simply linger and take in the serenity here.

If you love butterflies, this is the spot for you. The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is filled with about 50 to 60 species of the colorful winged creatures that seemingly float through the air in an enclosed 5,000-square-foot aviary. Plant enthusiasts will also find much they'll love here, as the butterflies share their home with 3,500 plants, along with more than 20 species of exoctic birds. Past visitors highly recommend a stop here, describing the conservatory as "serene" and a great place to get away from the crowds.

It was an extremely hot day when we were in Key West for just the day on a cruise ship stop. When we walked into the Butterfly Conservatory all frustrations and cares melted away. The atrium was a welcome and inviting sanctuary with tropical plants, flower and every butterfly you can imagine. We found ourselves oohing and ahhing over every butterfly we saw. They hang from trees, fly past you, are on the ground. The best one I saw was one that was brown and had a eye like pattern when closed but a brilliant, electric blue when open. This is a must see stop for anyone in Key West.
