  • Zoo alternative. Kids will get more out of their visit here because it's one part zoo, one part exploratorium and one part playground. Outside air is really good but can be a little cold, young children should be bundled up. There is water play exhibits so bring extra clothes, members go through lines faster and parking can be tight so get there early. Go on a day you can attend all the live feedings.
  • Great indoor and outdoor spaces to explore. The zoo animals are much more active than the animals at SF zoo. There are water/sand tables for the kids to play with outside. Might be a good idea to bring a change of clothes for kids. There's also a nice little gift shop. You can reserve space for private events (birthday parties, etc.).
  • This place is terrific, I wish I had known about it sooner! There is a small zoo with a variety of interesting animals, lots of live demonstrations with the animals, and some nice activities for kids to explore inside. The location and views are also incredible. I am excited to come back!
  • This is a really great kids museum and zoo. All the hands-on exhibits are usable by a wide range of ages. The zoo is compact but has a good variety of animals. I think the highlight of the zoo area is the otter exhibit. It's really well done. On a clear day it's really good place for watching planes land at SFO and boats putter in and out of the harbor.
  • My kids love to come here. All time their favourite place.They love to see the river otters and owls. Staff there were so kind and friendly!! When my son's birthday, he told them that day was his birthday at the entrance, they gave him a huge birthday sticker and made him day! So every staffs were congrated him everytime they saw him at his birthday sticker. Also the Light illumination (limited time event until early January 2018) was just amazing. When you have chance to buy something from the gift shop, they can do very nice and cute wrapping if you want. It's definitely worth to go with your little one! Highly recommend.
