  • Cool place. Every time i visit Manhattan this is a must visit. My kids love it. We bought our first Tarantula here. Wish we had a place likevthis in Detroit metro.
  • My kid loved every minute of it. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend spending a few hours here.
  • My son didn't want to leave, staff answered all his questions and very knowledgeable, highly recommended
  • 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.
