“Outstanding Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Science Center is an excellent way to get up close and personal views of gibbons, tigers, howler monkeys and more! With the new expansion complete, the Sciquarium is the place to visit. Insider secret :: Sunday mornings are the least crowded!
