  • We were a bit apprehensive about going after reading some of the reviews but it turned out great. While designed for slightly younger kids my animal lover daughter loved it and there was a nice variet...  read more »
  • Truly, others may disagree but i don't see what this place is all about. Dark & dank and lets not forget the location! It's a wonder anyone ever finds the place. Save your money. 
  • Because we visited the Eco Tarium this month, September, it was half-price! The only venue that had closed on Labor Day was the Tree Canopy Walk because it is operated by local college students. My si...  read more »
  • Adult night at the EcoTarium last week was great summer fun! (June 16). A great idea to get Millennials as well as older folks out after work for a social evening in a great place to unwind after a long work day. Had the opportunity to play like a kid and just chill. Also great idea to get local college communities to visit for these adult nights, especially international students stuck here over the summer. Great to show them fun things to do in Worcester. Should do more of these events!!!
  • Really fun and interactive place for the kids. My 4 year old loves the large wood blocks which he can build a house with, and the bubble maker, who doesn't like large bubble :) Also, my brother in law bought the membership so two families can go with no extra cost. We haven't explored everything yet, so we'll be back.
  • Had a ton of fun with our kids and another family. Really enjoyed the bubble activity. Sad we missed the Tree Canopy walk--they ran out of tickets, so make sure you get yours on the first chance at the Main building entrance (top floor). The museum is small, but packed with unique and fun activities and exhibits here in comparison to other museums, like the hurricane simulator, the "Amazingly Immature" section, etc. Train ride is just OK, though.
  • Lots of fun things to learn about wildlife and a great outdoor playground. Easy to spend several hours here with your kids.
  • Great place for the kids on a nice day as there are some lovely, simple trails around the grounds. Lots of birds and other animals to see and great selection of interactive exhibits inside. A lovely party ground out side too. There is a couple of cafes up eat at but a nice place to bring a picnic. The tree top walk and train rides weren't open on our visit but they did look impressive. There is also plenty of parking.
