Well worth the time to visit this wondrous place. It was so peaceful and magical, and a wonderful experience. A treasure of Key West. All types of butterflies, and birds flying freely. The two Pink Flamingos were talking up a storm. Kudos to the kind staff, and the people who keep this place alive for all of us to experience. Highly recommend taking an hour out of your day to see.
A beautiful conservatory of butterflies and birds. Absolutely a wonderful place to visit and sit and relax. Walk along the paths slowly to look for camouflage butterflies resting among the plants. Wear shorts as it is warm and humid inside and very tropical. The flamingos are awesome as well as all of the colorful birds. The butterflies were abundant and the air circulation kept them moving around so from the moment we entered, we saw lots of butterflies. Well worth the cost of admission to get in.
