  • We took our children here years ago, but when it came to our grandchildren, the admission fees seemed very high especially compared with other area attractions. 
  • My grandaughter (3years old) was visiting . And we were looking for things to do. This was suggested by a friend of mine . First thing I have to say is , she is shy and a bit timid . So was instantly ...  more »
  • I went yesterday with my daughter and she had a great time. I was surprised the restrooms were very messi and dirty. For a childrens place I would expect very clean restrooms

  • Great place¡ is good for little kids. They can find a lot of dynamic activities. Nice place for 2 or 3 hours.
  • Good entertainment for a few hours on Saturday! Kiddos especially liked the animal feeding time, where they were able to help feed the turtles.
  • very outdated as everyone else has said...and very expensive for not much. luckily I'm a member of kidcity (which is fantastic!!!!) so I got 50% off which is still too much for this place. my 3 year old did spent about an hour here,. I really wish our last stop hadn't been to see that poor Bobcat pacing in his exhibit clearly losing his mind! please get these poor miserable animals a home somewhere more suitable!!! horrible! for this reason I'll never go back.
  • Very underwhelming! Costs wayyyy too much for what it is. Exhibits are old, many not working, and they are not very elaborate. Sorry to say this is probably the worst children's museum I've been to when factoring in the ticket price. Also, using a stroller here is very difficult. There are MANY stairs and no ramps or elevators. I will say they do have a lot animals and the whale statue is cool.
  • This place is incredibly outdated and poorly run. The children in my Summer Camp were quickly bored of the exhibits and were looking for things to do after 30 min. The mountain lion is gone. Half of the staff is uninvolved & disinterested. When booking a small field trip for my Summer Camp, we were charged for the children who had called out sick and did not even go. This is ridiculous and a terrible way to run a business, but there were no exceptions given. This used to be a fun and educational experience for the children, now it is a summer field trip that my Camp will be eliminating from our Summer Camp schedule in future Summers.
