  • I didn't plan to visit a ZOO, but as it was on my way through Fells Reservation I got curious and entered. I was done in 30 minutes and it was definitely not worth it entrance fee. They don't have too...  more »
  • We took our four year old over the weekend. The zoo wasn't crowded and there were a decent number of animals to see. The jaguar was really active and there were a lot of neat snakes. Note they are doi...  more »
  • When my two grown sons asked where there was a zoo near by so that they could sketch animals for their art portfolios, I instantly said The Stone Zoo! I grew up near by and remember fondly all the tri...  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!
