“Great for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

My nieces love a trip to Turtle Bay. With some fun little critters and a great outdoor play area, it's a wonderful way to spend a day getting the little ones tired out.

“Absolutely worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

From the outside it looked small. we were concerned if this was worth our time and money. we were so glad we went in. It had a lot of stuff. The kids had a blast and really enjoyed it. The parakeet feeding is a MUST DO. Wow that was a really nice experience. Staff was excellent.

“Educational”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

It is a little expensive, but it has many educational displays through out the year. It has a lot of history the area and is worth seeing if you are a history or nature buff and not pinching pennies.

“EXPENSIVE”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

not much to see for the money, the stone turtles shown in the photo are near the entrance and we thought were impressive, be sure and put your stuff in the trunk of your car and LOCK IT UP!
