The Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is one of Key West’s newer attractions and really in a category of its own.
A large, glass atrium has been filled with lush tropical vegetation, colorful and exotic butterflies, and tropical birds. Flowering plants line the winding pathways as some 50 different types of butterflies enjoy the habitat.
Don’t be surprised if one lands on your colorful shirt. They will even sip nectar from your hand! All the while enjoy the serenity and beauty of the climate controlled (for the creatures, not you) environment. Great gift shop with many unique items.
