For little money, you get an easy accessible variety of life animals and plants Loved the aquariums, stuffed birds and the dioramas Funny to pay to go see white tailed deer while we have plenty in the backyard. The large hiking trail was unfortunately closed,...More

Easy walk outside & great play/hands on learning area inside. Both my 6 & 9 yr olds enjoyed it. It was a hot day on our visit and a lot of the animals were staying in the shade but could still be viewed.

The nature walk was really interesting . You get to see the animals in almost a "nayural " envoirment. I would almost call it Frankforts best little Zoo. My wife especially enjoyed it after having cataract surgery. the animals were very clear to see.

Nice local place for families. Enjoyed brining my out of town family. It has grown over the years. Nice that you can get fishing poles for free.
