My first, more passionate review of this "zoo" was disallowed because of disparaging remarks. To remain factual and helpful to other users - the zoo entrance is filled with taxidermy. The animal cages are small relative to other zoos. The grounds are rocky and dusty and difficult to navigate with a stroller. The "museum" is a collection of old cars,... More

I just visited Space Farms Zoo and Museum for the 3rd time over this past Labor Day weekend. Each time we go, we bring new people with us.

We took 3 children to visit the museums and zoo the first week of September. The entryway and museum displays are awesome. The 12' bear has been in the display for as long as I can remember and is still amazing. There is one of the most extensive collections of Indian artifacts, guns and other memorabilia on the second floor.... More

Absolutely fantastic! People giving Negative reviews are insane or just bashers for who knows why. I was there yday, animals cared for, fed, SHADE AREA for EVERY animal. Why would someone say no shade provided and there is clearly that in every area or smaller caged areas as well. And these (trees) shaded areas didn't just pop up over night... More

I was to Space Farms about 5 years ago and decided it would be a fun attraction for my now 6 year old grandson. We arrived early and it was on a weekday, so that was great. There were hardly any people there. The admission price for 2 seniors and one child, plus a bag of food, was around $48.... More

Visited on a weekend in August. First, the poor animals have the absolute minimum in care and shelter. The cages are bleak and small, filled with lots of dirt and dust. There really needs to be lots of vegetation, shrubs, and a nurturing atmosphere for these depressed animals. All the animals have no escape from the oppressive sun and heat.... More

Just went to Space Farms with my twin 2 1/2 yos and 4 yo. I'm still thinking about the place. The entrance is really cool with a 12 foot stuffed bear as the centerpiece. If taxidermy's your thing ala Norman Bates, this place is for you! My husband and I were appalled by the conditions the animals live in. I... More

My opinion, over priced on a big piece of land. Not worth the almost $60 for our family of four. Went because we were staying at a local resort. Should have just stayed there. Pay more & get more. I am sticking with the Bronx Zoo for the entire day, not the 1 1/2 hour spent here.
