not sure what to expect but we really enjoyed learning about and seeing so many butterflies. Be sure to watch the 15 minute video and then be entranced by hundreds of butterflies.

Very fun and relaxing place to visit right near the Southern Point Marker. Lots of butterflies in a greenhouse with soothing music and flowing water sounds. Definitely worth the time and money.

Interesting little conservatory. I went reluctantly with my wife and I think I ended up enjoying it as much as she did. I think we were there for an hour total, definitely worth going to.

Everyone loves butterflies so of course it's worth doing. They incorporate some better displays of the caterpillar stage and the other metamorphic stages, particularly the final stage. You can observe the workers and their tasks cultivating the butterflies. The gift shop is also a nice...More

Stopped in with dear friends to grab a bite for lunch. The food was a tasty treat, the Sangria was fruity perfection and the service and staff delightful. Heading to Key West--check them out!

I loved seeing the beautiful gardens with all the beautiful butterflies. They have a great gift shop also if you like butterfly items. The employees were very friendly. Would highly recommend this when visiting Key West.

It depends on how long you want to linger. You can do it easily in 20 minutes. But you will want to take your time and really savor it.

Yes, we reopened on Oct 3rd. The Conservatory and all its tenants (birds, butterflies, flamingos) did great during the storm.
