What a wonderful place with both outdoor and indoor exhibits! There were 3 of us ranging in age from 35 - 65 and even though there are a lot of hands on exhibits geared towards children/teens, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We started our day off in the butterfly exhibit during one of the two releases they have daily. It was a wonderful sight! The butterfly enclosure itself was filled with all different sizes and shapes of butterflies and exotic plants. Then we proceeded to the outdoor exhibits where you followed a boardwalk through different areas. I recommend bottled water as this is a fairly long walk. We saw black bears and lemurs in natural habitats. Unfortunately, the wolves were hiding in their dens, but we did hear them howling after we had moved on from their exhibit. The wind and mist exhibits were lots of fun. They had remote control sailboats and different contraptions to demonstrate the movement of air currents. The mist exhibits were really cool, you hit a button and the mist rises from the grass to surround you! Inside the main building there were many hands on things to do we tried our hand at several involving paper airplanes and floating devices. Our attempts weren't very successful, but it was so much fun! The space travel area was very interesting as was the weather exhibits, where among other things, you could watch a tornado form (hint: everyone has to stand very still).....I could go on and on....Overall this is a great place for ALL ages.
