The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is a visual pleasure. The conservatory is intended to represent a full ecosystem, with everything from plants to insects coexisting in harmony. It's a live, breathing demonstration of how nature can grow when given the appropriate conditions.
You're taken to a world of awe the moment you step inside. The beautiful fluttering of wings fills the air as dozens of varieties of butterflies glide about. There's plenty to see everywhere you look, from the vibrant flowers to the lush vegetation.
To add to your excitement, you might even get to witness the wonder of metamorphosis. You may observe caterpillars turn into chrysalises and eventually emerge as fully-formed butterflies in the butterfly breeding laboratory. It's a very breathtaking sight.
It's also a shelter for all sorts of species, big and little. There are numerous fascinating species to view, ranging from exotic birds to tiny reptiles.
