What an extraordinary experience. I could people gasp when they entered this magical place. There are not sufficient words to describe.

What a treat! In the midst of all of the crazy commercialism is a quiet place of beauty. Now, I am not saying the gift shop isn't commercial, but the butterflies are so beautiful and abundant. It is like a secret garden with treasures everywhere...More

The Butterfly room has very little signage in it regarding the butterflies. If you want to be able to identify the butterflies, you need to purchase a laminated guide when you pay your admission. That said, it is a beautiful tropical garden.

The Key West butterfly conservatory was really awesome. Be ready for sauna like environment but the butterflies fly all around and the birds are pretty exotic. definitely worth the stop

Had a great visit. Just a lovely little place! Close to Banana Cafe where we had lunch after. A must visit especially with children.

The butterflies and the foliage were all quite beautiful! Rhett and Scarlet were quite entertaining and the staff was friendly and welcoming. We got so many great pictures and video vignettes. The gift shop was also fun! Thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

Not all in our group wanted to check out the Conservatory, but a few of us did so we made it happen. So glad we did, it's Beautiful and Fascinating. As soon as you walk through the doors there are 1000's of butterflies flying around...More

A beautiful place to visit. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. If you wear bright colors the butterflies will come to you and perch. They also have a great gift shop with unique gifts.

I can't see why not. It is a completely indoor sanctuary.

If they are the 2 green birds, I don't think so. They were primarily in a tree by the exit door and I never saw them with young or really concerned about anything but the people trying to get a good picture of them.
