We didn't really know what to expect but it turned out to be the most favorite of all. The staff is very competent, the place is beautifully kept. A great family attraction.

Kids enjoyed this museum because it was hands on and there were so much to see from fishes to life like dinosaurs.

Lots of fun! Great for all ages! Go early if you want to see the animals in the summer. As it gets warmer the animals usually sleep.

Very interesting and educational. Not an all day thing by any means. We enjoyed it but once we had experienced and seen everything there were very few things near by for a 9yr old to enjoy. Much better area for older kids or just adults.

No problem using our emails that we rec'd from you , however the museum wasn't all we thought it would be, it was somewhat disappointing, not many animals

Thought there would be more included based on the price we paid, we were expecting more, were not able to keep kids entertained as much as we expected.

The outside walk was good, although some of the animals were not out due to the rain. But it was tranquil enough for me.

Loved the boardwalk through the woods, but it was a shame almost all of the animals they had were nocturnal creatures. In other words, they were all asleep.

Was thinking that it was larger and had more animals. The trails were good, but not enough animals.

Very nice place to mix and mingle outdoor zoo with aquarium. The hands on attractions that were advertised were a let down but overall a nice place to visit with children. Would not recommend planaterium to parents with children under 3.

We got there a little late, it was about 100 degrees outside so we didn't get to wander around. But it was pretty neat to see all the different things they had.
