We visited twice during our trip to Key West. The number and variety of butterflies was wonderful. We also saw lots of tropical birds, and even a few turtles. A great place to just sit and watch nature's beauty.

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.
