  • Quiet, friendly atmosphere. Exhibits are awesome Family friendly lots of things kids can touch and do. OH!! And the otters? Mac & Tuck? WELL they are just a joy to watch them play.
  • Very nice facility. I had a problem with one of the educators telling the kids and parents that the snapper turtle breathed through its gills. The science teacher in me cringed... Then we had a worker at the gift shop approach my six-year-old and five-year-old and ask them if they were going to buy the toys that they were looking at and playing with. Completely empty gift shop. Not bothering anyone. I would of spent $50 there if it wasn't for her approach. Did she really think they had money? Marketing wise you put toys on lower-level shelves so the kids will touch them and then ask the parents to buy them. I guess the three minutes they were playing with the toys on the floor was too long. River otters were great and touch tank was cool. May go back again. I wish them luck.
