My family and friends had a great time here. We spent about 2 hours seeing the animals and playing in the interactive exhibits. The toddlers mostly enjoyed the turtles and fish, slide play area, flower building toys, and butterflies. Would definitely recommend for kids!

Visited whilst on holiday in Chicago and really enjoyed it. We called in for the photography exhibition that was on but also enjoyed the butterfly house and the outdoor areas were fantastic for bird watching - being from the UK, we saw species we'd never seen before. We bypassed some of the exhibits but imagine it would be great for kids. Cute little seated, cafe area too (snacks, sandwiches from a vending machine but fresh coffee) with good prices - we even called in another day to get a coffee and watch the birds again.

We were able to visit on a Saturday when the cost to get in was just a donation! That was nice. I heard about this place from a friend who really raves about it. I hate to say it didn’t live up to the hype. Some exhibits were very dated yet others were great! Glad we went but don’t think I’d ever go again. Thankful the zoo was right there and we could walk to it!

My gosh I never was there till this last summer. It is quite a place to see. I know parking is a problem. Yes you can park right next door. You can take a bus or cab to get there. Not that far away from the zoo They have a two week camp there for young kids
