  • This place is great for all people who enjoy creepy crawlies. It is even better for those who want to learn that bugs are not so scary. Very educational collection and skilled teachers. This is also where I met my tarantula! She has been with me for many years now and she started off so small! A must see Zoo!
  • Great for any age group of children. Variety of displays available to view for each group of insects. Staff was very friendly and answered tons of questions the kids had. Beautiful garden paths and fountains surround the building as well.
  • Great place to visit. Bees and cockroaches were awesome to see and touch.
  • Nice place, but is really small, is good for the kids.
  • A great place to bring the family! If you are curious about insects and want to see exotic and native species, this is the place to go. Awesome displays of leaf-litter decomposers, creek aquarium, and desert swellers. Lots of books and games to play.
