    We recently took our two year old there. Admission is free, but I think planetarium shows have a cost. There is a nice outdoor pond and a small collection of animals, mostly birds and fish. We did not...  more »

    A lovely visit for little children or older kiddos. This is good for a few hours, but don't expect it to be like a complex Cleveland Science Center (it's small). However, if it's a nice day, there are woods that are fun to explore around the LEN&SC - great for hikes for all ages. Very close to parks, the beach, and ice cream shops, so you can make a day of Bay Village.

    This place is super fun and you get to see a good variety of animals. It is free to get in and also very hands on for the kids.. The gift shop is a little pricey. There is a huge park located around it so you can hike picnic or just sit back and enjoy nature!

    Great place for kids. Includes native owls, hawks, crows, fox, skunk, rabbits turkey, Bald Eagle, fish, snakes, turtles, frogs, and bee hives. The indoor part includes a planeterium with shows geared towards children of different age groups and families and a nice gift shop. Classes and School field trips are popular. Nice places to hike and public beach are nearby.

    Good for small kids. I liked it ( standard for 4 stars). Were there for small child birthday party. Was nice because they bring in a few​ animals. Kids loved. So not a bad idea there for small kids. Geared to smaller kids. They have a planetarium which is neat but again seemed more geared to the tiny tots. Older children will be bored quickly but not a bad stop on a way to the beach or hike.

    Nice nature experience. Friendly staff, too. I really enjoyed seeing all the birds of prey. The beehive exhibit is great, too.
