Great place to take kids. I felt it was a little overpriced for the amount of time spent there. My wife and I took our three kids there and it was $38.50. That sounds reasonable except we only spent a bout 1 hour there. Compare that to $63 to go to the Downtown Aquarium where we spent 3 hours(I did have a coupon for $10 off there though). We all held the tarantula, except my wife, we touched the starfish and the horseshoe crabs. Then we spent a good 1/2 hour inside the butterfly enclosure finding and watching all the different varieties of butterflies and moths. It's definitely a place you have to visit at least one time, but I take off 1 star for bang for you buck.
