    Stone Zoo is not very big, but well kept and the animals seem very well cared for. It's a great place to stroll around on a nice day and interact some with nature.  more »

    I love animals very much, and I know some zoos are there to help animals and to give them happy life, but this zoo is just so upsetting. The enclosures are way too small. I saw tree monkeys in a tiny ...  more »

    That zoo is different from Franklin Park, and this is an advantage. Apes and flamingos were stars for our kids. The zoo may benefit from a lactation room or a family restroom.  more »

    More pavement on paths makes for easier foot travel. Zoo keepers at various exhibits; some with artifacts such as pelts to touch. Would have appreciated a heads up that entryway bathrooms were off line. Can't wait to see new buildings and entry finished!

    Stone Zoo is a gem of a small zoo. It has some great animals, including the snow leopards which are quite rare and Mexican wolves. The layout is easy to follow and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very approachable. This is a lovely site to take in on any day and is suitable for kids of all ages. Check it out!!

    This is the worst zoo I've ever been to. I never take the time to review anything but this was so bad that I actually felt the need to warn any potential visitors to not waste the $17 on this animal jail. Not only was it trashy and run-down, but the animals looked as though they wanted nothing but death. On second thought, the animals looked on the verge of death anyway in their hot, miserable, unbearably smelly "exhibits". The reindeer that the zoo had on display actually looked as though it had skin cancer, as it had bald patches on its fur where skin showed. The single llama that the zoo had was in an exhibit that was purely a grass field and nothing else. The gift shop was so bad looking that when I first looked at it I thought it was being worked on. It wasn't. This zoo was so below average in its maintenance and treatment of its animals that I felt myself feeling extremely pitiful for them and didn't even want to look at most of them. I could go on longer but to save you the time I will finish with this: if any family is looking for something fun to do in MA and is potentially visiting Stone Zoo, please, spend your money on something worthwhile.

    Not the best conditions. The animals are in some pretty confined places and over all the place is old and a bit smelly. The larger animals just pace consistently....lot of fund raising for new buildings for gift shops etc. They say a lot or research goes on ..but i doubt it..it is an amusement park.for children...and the animals are the entertainment unfortunately. Can some other zoo take some of these poor animals..????

    Did a private tour to feed for sloths. Was absolutely amazing. The staff was amazing and the experience feeding the sloths was like no other!
