This place was ok. The animals are in rather small cages. This is a plus if you are with young children because you will definitely have a chance to see all the animals, unlike the Bronx zoo where sometimes the animals are too far away or otherwise out of sight. This is a minus if you think about how limited... More

It's a wonderful place - you can tell that the animals are loved and well cared for. The grounds are a little rough around the edges but I can imagine that their money goes for caring for the animals first and foremost! Add to that the amazing collections in the museum areas (yes, areas!) and there's something for everyone -... More

This is a very interesting and entertaining zoo and museum. Most people seem to view the zoo first and foremost, and view the museum as an afterthought... so I am going to talk about the museum first. There is an amazing collection of artifacts in this museum. The galleries are spread out but are well worth exploring. They say that... More

I had a six and 7 year old with me and they've loved the zoo. They were able to feed the animals. Staff was around and helpful they engaged the children and were knowledgable of animals in their care. I was taken aback in the museum with exhibits of animals but children loved it i was also surprised with the... More

Now the zoo is pretty good. My kids enjoyed it and had a good time with it, however, the personal collection this family has accumulated over the years and turned into a museum is absolutely incredible. When you walk in the animal mounts catch your attention. Then when I looked to my left, an incredible gun collection like I've never... More

Space Farms is a small zoo, but filled with all kinds of animals, Tigers, bears, deer, small animals too. There is also a great collection of cars, farm equipment and even Golliath the bear, who is now stuffed but really cool to see up close.

Visited for a children's party and was shocked how this is allowed by animal protection services!! Animals in cages with less than a few feet to move around! An alligator that can't move at all. I was disturbed and angry I gave this place my admission money
