I've seen all the ratings online (which I'm sure most are paid for and mostly positive ones get approved) but we decided to try it out. Very big wide open space for the kids to run around to the cages. But considering all the open vast land and what they charge to get in they can afford to give these... More

If you have kids this is a good day out. Firstly the place is big with animals given a lot of space to move around in, now that's contrary to some other reviews, but some animals are sitting in acres of land! The wild cats/lions/etc have just as much space as other Zoos such as Turtleback zoo. It's not as... More

We visited this zoo with some friends and our children ranging from 8-11.. WE all had a great time. It is very small and friendly. Not over crowded. It was small enough that the kids could run ahead and we didn't have to worry about them getting lost. Loved all the animals and the museums were very interesting. I would... More

Through the years I have brought my son here as it is really just a town away. It was always fun and entertaining for him when he was young. It is laid out nicely to walk it with children and the variety of animals is good. They also have a barn with antique cars which honestly breaks my heart they... More

We love Space Farms. There are things for everyone - wild animals zoo and farm animals, vintage cars museum, picnic tables, fresh made pizza, beautiful vistas and playgrounds for kids. You can easy spend the whole day there. You will find a lot of needed shade in a summer under old oaks. Not crowded even on weekends - there are... More

It started as a good family event... The reviews were good, everything should have been nice. The museum was nice, quaint. The zoo... I pity. The animals such as bears, large cats , & primates... were NOT adequately hydrated!!! No source of water, let alone fresh water! The animals that needed the space were not given adequate space. The alligator... More

This is one of the best places I've been with my son. Not only do you get to see the great zoo with a wide variety of amazing well kept animals but the museum is awesome. My son loved both and so did I. The staff was very nice and knew a lot about the animals. Both the zoo and... More

My husband and I stopped here on a whim during a scenic drive. We paid our admission, got our map and proceeded to make our way through the zoo. By reading the signs by the enclosures/cages we learned many things about the animals which we didn't know. We had a delicious lunch in their restaurant. Had we planned our visit,... More

This is a great little zoo that is just packed with little surprises. We live nearby so I bring my daughter here about a dozen times a year. It has a wonderful collection of antiques in addition to the animals. There are buildings with firearms, cars, carriages, cannons, wagons, motorcycles, tools, toys, dolls, rocks, taxidermy, you name it. You can... More

This is the second time I write a review of Space Farms for some reason every time I write a review it is taken off trip adviser and replaced with five negative reviews. First, I am not an animal rights activist. I like zoos, am pro hunting and have no issues with taxidermy. However, I am against animal cruelty and... More
