This was an interesting place to visit. Plenty of butterflies of various species, complete with chrysalises, turtles, flamingos. The music was soothing. Not a very big place, but there is plenty of butterflies to watch.

Visited here on a whim during a vacation to Key West. It’s a small conservatory but has many species of butterflies and even birds. Not expensive, easy to tour, accessible for wheelchairs. Worth a visit!

This is a very worthwhile attraction. The signage and displays are meaningful, and there were plenty of butterflies and birds active. The plants and flowers are lovely as well. This facility is convenient to other Key West landmarks, too.

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.
