We went on a family outing with my 2 and 5 year old kids and they had a great time. My son loved the snakes and spiders (typical boy!) and my daughter had fun with the monkeys, birds and butterflies. The butterflies are beautiful and to see them in their natural tropical habitat was wonderful. We had lunch at the little restaurant - the staff were really friendly and service was quick and efficient, even though the place was full. The little gift shop is well priced and we came home with some cute souvenirs. Definitely recommended for a educational & fun outing.
