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

We usually visit Space Farms every 1-2 years. We went this week; the animals mostly had spacious areas to move about, water to bathe in and plenty to eat. There are 3 Kodiak bear cubs, each six months old - they were so playful and fun to watch! A resident cat took residence with the raccoons! Love the prairie dogs... More

My wife and i decided to take a quick trek out here to burn a day for the our 2 year old daughter to run around. The zoo wasn't bad, but the type of animals could be a little better. Our daughter loved it which was the most important part. I would give it 3.5 stars overall. FYI bring your... More

Very nice and clean zoo. There are a large variety of animals and its really cool to be able to feed and interact with them. I was surprised at how big it was. We had a great time and if I'm ever in the area again, I would definitely return.

This zoo needs some major updating, not only for the visitors but for the poor animals as well. The cages for all the big cats, Wolves, and monkeys were FAR too small. They have no room to explore or roam. When we were there the jaguar was literally crying. All the animals just seem extremely sad and neglected. I will... More
