Great place to see Animals without having to go to the zoo. Not too big so your kids won't get tired of walking. We love the bear, elk, and buffalo.

They have info and stuffed and living versions of various animals here along with 2 fishing pond/lakes. The have tons of geese outside so watch where you step. The info inside is great and the people that run it are great wealth of knowledge.

We visit here regularly. It is a beautiful facility and is well kept. It is relaxing and educational and the workers are very knowledgeable. Its fun for all ages and physical ability. You can see as much or as little as you like. Its a great asset to Kentucky! You can tour the center and trails and then picnic, fish or just relax out under the trees.

There on a beautiful Friday. No tours. No lectures. No love animals. Lots of school kids.
Exhibits were educational but I was hoping for more. A 9 year old learns better from personal teaching instead of reading posters.

We visit Selato many times through out the year! We usually choose this over the Zoo, because costs are extremely low and we get a better animal experience. My two young boys always have a great time here and learn so much.
