Great place to visit. Knowledgeable and friendly staff! Animals are happy and those nonvenemous are handled by staff. Some animals can be on request petted. Great for Boy and Girl Scout Troops. Great admission fee 12 and under $2 a person, 13 and over $3 a person.

I have held a party here and attended six others. Every party was a success and very easy to host. There are plenty of tables and chairs for parents who wish to stay. Staff always fun and informative.

Pretty nice place I felt kind of bad for some of the animals but for San Angelo it was overall a nice experience.

You can truly see that they are interested in their well being and also to teach everyone about each species. My granddaughter and grandson actually had their birthday parties here and the other children loved it. It is such a great learning... More

This small nature center packs way above its punch, with a large number of animals, insects and reptiles for the small size of the museum. One of the staff gave me a personal guided tour which was fascinating. I saw two giant tortoises sheltering in the garden from the sun. Don't miss the Burmese python, all 250 pounds of him/her...

I went to the Nature Center with my daughter and my 4 grandchildren visiting from out of state. We loved it and they enjoyed holding a few of the animals and seeing so many neat ones from the area and other parts of the world. It was worth the time!!

We loved this place. It is very interesting and the nature specialist let us pet a snake, a prairie dog, a turtle and some other animals. She is really nice. We loved it. It is located just on the site of the lake where there is a very nice view.

There are exhibits on mammals, reptiles, amphibian, fish, buttterflies,shells insects, etc. both native to Texas and from other parts of the world. Very fascinating. I thought the animals all seemed... More
