Butterfly and Nature Conservatory
With its year-round balmy, tropical weather, Key West is the perfect place for fragile butterflies which love to flit around visitors. This greenhouse environment houses all kinds of residents of different groups - turtles and birds, too. One of the main attractions is the life cycle of the monarch butterfly. You can see the caterpillars feed before they shelter themselves in their chrysalises. Admission is $15 per adult and hours are from 9 to 5 daily.
