“Help protect endangered species”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a delightful zoo run by the private Millbrook School. The students at the school are involved in the care and feeding of the animals. They also are learning about the environment and threats to species. It is a very small zool suited to families with little children. There are several species of endangered monkeys here. As you enter the zoo you cross over the otter pond and usually see the otter's sliding into the water and playing. We have made many repeat visits to the zoo and each is enjoyable.

“A truly special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a truly unique, AZA certified, zoo on the grounds of Millbrook School. While we were there 2 baby red pandas were born. Kids will love to watch the otters play in the waterfall area of the dam.

“Brought my children to the zoo yearly, for years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I am a huge fan of Trevor Zoo. It is just over an hour drive from our home. For years, when our children were 2 to 12, we would periodically (once or twice a year) do a day trip to the Millbrook area with the Trevor Zoo as destination #1.

It was a great way to spend a day and we all have many fond memories of our trip to the zoo. Particularly nice excursion on those days when the weather was iffy or there was not otherwise much to do. Lots of other sights to see or good places to eat lunch/brunch in the Millbrook area.

My daughter was so fascinated by the zoo that she now attends Millbrook School and has done a stint as zooey. She hopes to have that be her primary community service next year.

“Nice little zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Perfect for younger children. The grounds are kept clean and the animals seem happy. The only thing that would make it better is if there were a place to view animals that didn't want to be outside - they have a set up like this for the lemurs but not some of the other animals.
