We stopped by to visit on our way to a state park. We all enjoyed the exhibits that the centre has to offer. The highlight was the treehouse and playing hide and seek in it (with the parents). There weren't too many butterflies, but the ones we observed were fun to watch.

Fun for kids and relaxing for adults. Had fun in the treetops structure and all the hands on exhibits inside. Didn't see any butterflies but it was a rainy day when we went.

Stopped by with my teenaged sons. Thank goodness it was only $2 each because we only spent about 20 minutes. Only saw one butterfly in the butterfly exhibit. The other animals are in amateurish enclosures. Nothing special about it. Very young children would have fun.

While in town for a wedding, we were looking for something to do with my niece and nephew (3 and 8 years old) and decided to try this. Entry fee was $3 per person and we got to see some pretty impressive taxidermy, walk some trails, see some live birds and reptiles, and visit a HUGE tree house they have... More

The Cayuga Nature Center is a great place to hike trails and get close to nature. The center has many displays and is a wonderful place to hold birthday parties for youngsters. Naturalists will bring in unique live animals to learn about and touch - lots of fun for kids and adults.

This is a great place that has dedicated volunteers who make welcomed the diverse people within the Ithaca area. Finding cocoons, identifying plants, you name it. Check out their summer programs.

This is a great place to go with your family or a group (such at Girl or Boy Scouts). There are trails, and they also offer great programs if you look online or call ahead. The natural beauty of Ithaca is apparent, and they also have a very cool tree house!

We had to drive a ways to get there, but it was so worth it. I especially loved the tree house! Great for kids.

Stopped here for short visit while in the area. Was intrigued by advertised 6 story tree house. Wasn't disappointed with that but felt more could be offered relative to small array of live animals both inside the nature center and outside. We did not have time to experience any of the nature trails so doing a trail or two might... More

This is the perfect place for little kids to hike. The six story tree fort is really cool and there are little destination activities/sights peppered along nice short and easy hikes
