A very nice mix of turtles, exotic birds, fish and butterflies. Worth it even when there are no butterflies, would like to go when the outside animals are around as well. Unfortunately the office and front room are rundown with a moldy smell and kind...More

This place is someone's hobby and preoccupation. Parking lot is dirt and crushed stone. If there are not a lot of cars, don't be afraid. A little walk to the remodeled farm house will put you into the cramped gift shop and entrance. Once inside...More

We drove over an hour just to go to this place. We should have kept going to Cooperstown. While I understand the purpose of this place, it really needs maintenance in keeping the place clean. The turtle pond was dirty and the feeding dishes and...More

There are many conservatories out there worth your money. It was small and had a bad odor. It was okay for something to do, but personally not worth $12 and an out of the way trip.

A bit whimsical and I enjoyed the butterflies, birds and other creatures. It's small and I would not recommend it for families with young children.

I think their hours are posted. It didn't look open when we went there, but it was.
