About these ratings

If you love butterflies, this is the spot for you. The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is filled with around 60 species of the colorful winged creatures that seemingly float through the air in an enclosed 5,000-square-foot aviary. Plant enthusiasts will also find much they'll love here, as the butterflies share their home with 3,500 plants. A few birds, fish and turtles also call the conservatory home. If you want to get really close to the butterflies, one TripAdvisor user gave some advice: "If you stand still, a butterfly may even land on you. Great place to take the children if they enjoy nature."

The conservatory is open daily. There's not really a bad time of day to visit, as different species of butterfly are active at different points of the day. Discounts on the slightly expensive ticket price are available for kids 12 and under, seniors, and military. It is located on Duval Street a block away from the Southernmost Point.
