“Great local zoo/museum is great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The zoo is great for children. Most exhibits are within view of children. The zoo has been updated throughout the years, though some still needed. The Museum is a great collection located in several outbuildings. Don't miss Goliath- largest Kodiak bear.

“An old zoo”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The first time I went there I was in the second grade back in the 60's This time I went with my neighbor and her young kids. The place is kind of run down, The animals are in small old fashion cages or in some cases pits with walls around like the prairie dogs. The exhibits are dusty and falling apart in some cases. They still had the same playground equipment I played on almost 50 years ago that is now banned. It was a sad tired old place full of miserable looking animals
