  • We had our first visit at Special Memories today. Mixed emotions/opinions for sure. Upon entering the registration and store area, I felt the space probably needed to be gutted. It seemed the area was...  more »

  • This is a great zoo. For a personally owned zoo that raises all their animals on their own from birth, I think they do a great job taking care of all the animals. Some cages may be small but the animals are happy and the kids love that you can get right up close to all the animals especially the giraffe! The petting zoo is always the best part and they have an amazing playground for the kids. The owners are great and friendly and always come with plenty of quarters because there are tons of goats and a pig to feed. A fantastic zoo that I will definitely keep coming to!
  • Wonderful place! The animal pens are ALWAYS clean with fresh water. The cages are all USDA approved and regulated. The negative comments are from people who don't know the science and behavior behind the animals. The animals here are interacted with frequently and well taken care of.
  • This zoo animal wise is better than the zoo in Oshkosh but I don't get how mokenys are happy living in cages that small. They may be regulation size but if they are then they on the extremely small end. I witnessed several monkeys ramming into the sides, screamming, and jumping side to side. The bears and large cat enclosure were in my eyes way to small and lacked habitat. I am not a fan of zoos and the promotion of captive animals. Even though my son enjoyed himself I probably won't visit again.
  • Worst zoo I have ever been to. Cages were way to small for the animals to live a good life in. Animals pacing back and forth and chewing on the cage wires trying to get out. Dirty water. Dirty cages. Don't go to this zoo. It makes you depressed looking at these animals.
  • Love the small town zoo. Train ride was the best. Very personable. Lots of different animals
