This was a great place to visit but when we went it was very hot and all the animals stayed inside their A/C caves. Very nice visit.

We had a great time w/the aquarium, zoo, and science museum all under one roof!! We enjoyed the variety! The shark tank volunteers were really engaging and taught us a lot! Most of the animals loved hiding in the shade so there wasn’t much action...More

This is a reasonably priced, great way to spent a few hours with the kids. It's educational and fun. Plenty to see. Outdoor animals were mostly indoors during our visit in July due to the heat. As with most zoos, if you'd like to see...More
