Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was reading the reviews and thought I would be disappointed or upset about animals not treated well, but those ridiculous reviews are completely false! I took my daughter upon someone's recommendation and I was so happy we went. This was such an awesome place. So many species of animals, all taken care of well. We watched most animals being fed, we got to feed some animals snacks, the enclosures were large and it was well maintained. It was such a great place for a family to visit. I don't want to give anything away, but you'll be surprised by some of the animals you will see at this zoo. If you have the opportunity, this is a must see. Enjoy the day. You may miss animals the first time around, so go through again. Lol.

I rarely write reviews but my conscience compelled me after coming here . The small animals and farm animals are fine however this is no place for exotic animals like bears tigers lions .. they are in cramped old cages with no stimulation out in the hot sun . I felt so sorry for them . This zoo needs to be closed or maybe refurbished in a way that respects these animals . Very sad

Unbelievable the number of various animals. Most availability to get up close to animals. You can feed some animals out of your hand, such as deer, elk, buffalo and goats, very exciting. Bears will stand on their back legs for an expected cookie thrown to them. If you like old cars this is the place for you. Unexplored Gem for sure.

Many of the animals do not have enough space to properly exercise, they pace appearing anxious and distressed. Many did not have water (that was visible and many didn’t have shade) and the day I was there was extremely hot. It was sad to see the beautiful animals caged for their entire lives so we could ogle them for a minute or two. I strongly recommend to not go.

Space farms is a sad prison for so many beautiful exotic animals. The enclosures are small and understimulating. I witnessed many animals pacing and looking distressed, trying to hide in their small enclosures while kids (and adults) threw food into their cages. The inside is even more disturbing. The Space family brags about having "captured" (I would say murdered) the HUNDREDS of exotic animals they have taxidermied on their walls. This includes leopards, polar bears, grizzly bears, and deer. This is especially comical because on their TV commercial they claim to be "conserving wildlife." How incredibly dense. The only reason I went is to take photos to try to get a legal case going against this roadside zoo.

Great place. Very vast with ample room for the animals. The variety of animals is great too. It's really cool to see the rare animals they have there.

I went as a child. Brought my daughter when she was five and now that she is 28 we returned this weekend. No this is NOT THE BRONX OR SAN DUEGO zoo but a fun simple zoo. Staff is wonderfully friendly. Animals well taken care of.

We had a blast feeding the animals the corn and cookies. Go in AM. Animals more active worth the ride. Places to picnic. People were holding birthday parties.

Thank you for a wonderful day !! So much fun seeing these majestic animals in such a beautiful setting. Have been here many times before and this was my birthday and I took my mother.
The owners are a family that pour their heart into taking care of the Zoo and Museum. Several generations were present the day I was there. The museum is also very enriching. Unlike other zoos, there are lots of opportunities to interact up close with the animals. Go and stretch your legs with lots of walking in the Country setting. Had a blast and lots of laughs, thanks again !!

I found this place so saddening . I cannot believe a place like this is allowed to operate. I wish I had read the reviews before going because I would never want to support a place like this.

My daughter and I took my husband to Space Farms for Father's Day. The museums were some of the best I have visited in our country. What an incredible collection.

I have no idea what the other reviews were referring to when they gave negative reviews about the animals. I worked for a couple years at a busy wildlife rescue. I thought the enclosures were good. All the animals looked well fed and cared for. My husband grew up on a small farm and he thought the same as I did.

I would recommend Space Farms Zoo & Museum to anyone looking for a great day trip.
