Enjoyed seeing the beautiful butterflies and flamingos. Nice gift shop as well. Great place for kids and families. Doesn't take much time and is also a great break from the heat.

It is a nice and small place. Nothing special. If you have time to spare, go. Butterflies fly around you and it is common to have then on your hands, on your head.

If you have a family, this is a must to do in Key West. The staff are great, and the conservatory is beautiful. Lots of interaction with hundreds of butterflies and many species. Step away from the booze clubs and the snorkeling for a couple hours and enjoy this spot. It was worth the drive from Miami to see. Would... More

I have never been to a butterfly conservatory before, so this was amazing to me! There were so many butterflies and even some will land on you. It's a fun experience that doesn't take a lot of time.

I really enjoyed my visit to the Bufferfly and Nature Conservatory. Lots of varieties of butterflies and birds, and Rhett and Scarlett, an entertaining pair of flamingos.

This is just a fun, and peaceful, break from the commotion along the other parts of Duval Street. The conservatory is somewhat of a small space, but it did not feel crowded during our visit. The number of butterflies there will amaze you. Great attraction, very well done.
