Visited with our 10-month-old son. He doesn't care much for the zoo at home, but this was neat because he could get up pretty close and see what was going on in the tanks. He enjoyed watching the jellyfish (there are tons and tons of different species of jellyfish! I had no idea how many!) and the sea lions. The touch tanks would be awesome for an older child. We opted to check the stroller at the door, and it was good because 1) it allowed him to get closer to the displays, and 2) the crowd was huge on a Sunday and would have made maneuvering the stroller a bit difficult. The gift shop is beautiful and full of interesting and unique things, but expensive (as expected).
