Just a neat little center that has several different types of experiences for kids to get acquainted with nature. Our grandson just enjoyed being that close to animals. Does not take a lot of time to see but worth the visit.

Great place for family to spend some time looking at the natural exhibits. Planetarium Program costs extra but the museum and grounds are free. The grounds have many rescued animals that are viewable. Part of the Huntington Reservation and across the street from the beach. Great for kids of all ages, especially for free!

Within the Metroparks system in Bay village, the Lake Erie Nature center is a little treasure for children. Consisting of wildlife displays, rescued animals, a planetarium, classrooms and a wonderful gift shop, the center a great place for children of all ages. The best part is that it is all free!
