How to Plan Your Visit

The Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is open every day of the year. The last admission is at 4:30 p.m., but the attraction does close early for certain holidays. The gift shop and gallery are open a bit longer though, so you have plenty of time to look for the perfect keepsake. Make arriving for your visit a breeze by purchasing your tickets online ahead of time.

What to See

Everywhere you look, there is something beautiful to see as you explore the conservatory. Start your visit at the Learning Center to hear about the butterfly life cycle and interesting facts about these stunning creatures. While here, learn even more about butterflies, like their anatomy and the migration of Monarch butterflies.

One of the most memorable parts of your visit is simply strolling along the grounds filled with flowering plants and trees as hundreds of butterflies and birds fly by. There are roughly 50 to 60 different species of these creatures that call the glass-enclosed habitat home. 

Finish your visit at the gift shop. The shelves are filled with nature and butterfly-related items. The store can ship your item home, ensuring it arrives in one piece. 

When planning your visit, reserve your spot to meet Rhett and Scarlett, the two resident flamingos. There is a maximum of six guests per day. For more information on this experience, email
