This would be a great place to visit with young kids on a rainy day. It was an okay place to visit on a sunny day with teenagers. Basically, it was a bit pricy for what is basically a zoo. It was interesting to see...More

The bio dome is more oriented towards children. It was great to see all the animals, but I expected more for my 20 some dollars.

We stumbled onto this while visiting the Botanical Garden. Definitely worth checking it out. Especially if you have young children. It was fairly crowded but had a good flow to it!

Filled with life, all types, in real settings. Fun to watch the penguins jump in the water and swim. I loved the Capybara walking about in the forest setting. Looking forward to going again soon but there are renovations going on at this time.
