|About these ratings|
If you love butterflies, this is the spot for you. The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is filled with about 50 to 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, along with more than 20 species of exoctic birds. Past visitors highly recommend a stop here, describing the conservatory as "serene" and a great place to get away from the crowds.
The conservatory is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. There's not really a bad time of day to visit, as different butterfly species are active at different points of the day. Admission for adults costs $12; tickets for kids 4 to 12 cost $8.50, while children younger than 4 enter for free. You'll find the conservatory on Duval Street, one block north of the Southernmost Point.
