  • I know the majority of the reviews are good, but I left this place in tears today. All of the animals are in really small enclosures. They all look sad, lonely & defeated.. the coyote looked the worst...  more »

  • This place is really awesome. There are great guided walking trails that are stroller accessible. The wild animals are interesting and the staff is always friendly and helpful. It is pretty darn expensive though, so if you plan on going more than once in a summer is worth your time and money to sign up for a membership. The one draw back if you go with little kids is, if your little one has a meltdown or gets tired, there is no shortcut back to the entrance/exit. It's only a loop.
  • Very nice, very well done presentation. A good way to learn. Some of the interactive exhibits were not functioning. It may have been due to offseason. Not sure.
  • Great place to take kids. Half way thru the very interactive nature trail is a great indoor and outdoor playground.
  • This place was like a hiking trail with huts to stop and see animals along the was. The animals are all native to New England. Staff was very nice and my two young girls had a blast looking at the animals and doing all the interactive things they had.
  • I visit the science center at least once a year. This is a great place to take the family and spend an afternoon.
