A casual stroll by the animals, all the animal caretakers are helpful and willing to tell you about the animals. A good selection of beasts, birds and such.

This review is for the Natural History Museum only. It is housed in a historical building. Diverse exhibits and good educational materials. In a bad weather day, it is perfect for anyone from young to old.

We visited the Roger Williams Botanical Gardens on October 19th 2013. The cost for admission is only 3.00 per person and while the gardens are small it is well worth the cost. Because our visit was late in the season much of the garden was becoming dormant for winter. We did visit the 2 green houses and they are very... More

This was my first time ever going here and I have to say, we had a blast. I love zoos and my husband used to go here as a kid so he wanted to take me. I think my favorite part was we got to watch the workers give the elephants a bath. They were so smart and they would... More

A visit to this park will automatically lower your blood pressure. Serene and beautiful, it forces you to relax and appreciate the beauty of a New England park. Make sure to ride the carousel; it's a classic.
