Great place to go with kids ages 2 up and adults. The zoo is good as animals are in their own habitats. Go on a cooler day or in the morning. We were there when it was very warm and animals were inside their huts or in shade out of heat. The areas inside were informative with good variety. There is a play area for little ones 2-4.

My grand daughters and I love the Science Center. It is very clean and organized. The staff is always courteous and helpful. Exhibits cater to even the smallest of us! Outside the shade trees kept us cool as we observed the animals, visited the petting zoo and even got to paint on the sidewalk. Always a lovely experience. So glad to be members!

Awesome place for kids and adults. We went specifically to see the "Wicked Plants" display, but ended up spending close to 4 hours there while visiting every area. The zoo, dinosaur exhibit and aquarium are top notch! Lots of written information about all the different aquatic life, as well as the outside zoo area and the dinosaur exhibit. Several interactive displays also makes it more interesting. If you live locally and haven't been in many years, like me, this is a place to take the family on a great outing.

We had the BEST time here! It was recommended by a friend and we are so glad we took it! I was a little skeptical of this multi themed museum because at times museums who try to offer so much don't cut it. This one blew us away! I can be pretty critical about places we visit, but I honestly had such an awesome time! They offered so much to do and see and experience! We did a standard visit, however you can add on additional animal encounters, science experiments, and hands on events at an additional cost. Since it was our first time there, we just did a basic visit. Oh, and there is a zoo!

Amazing. From the zoo, to the museum, to the aquarium, the entire facility impressed me with its knowledgeable volunteers and staff. It was also very clean, well maintained, and family friendly. The admissions price is very reasonable since you’re getting such an immense package behind the front doors. There are also many upgradable options with fun movies, later shows, and even a high ropes course. I would recommend this place 10/10. From my experiences, I would also like to say that the animal handling was tremendous and that it’s not a typical zoo. They focus not on entertainment, but mostly on the animal wellbeing. The staff puts all of its animals first and I appreciate that.
