Due to budget cuts the Naturalist center in Leesburg is no longed open. I am not sure where the other reviewers visited but the Smithsonian Naturalist center has been closed for over a year

Although this gem is only open to the public once weekend per year, two days and five (5) hours each day, the wait is worth it here. Very informative with a few rare animals to see as well (Red Panda, maned wolves and more). Yes, it will be crowded but it's sprawled on many an acre so you don't feel stifled. Will go again next year!

I was impressed. With my teenage niece visting, I was looking for something different and educational to do. This fit the bill. Bugs, beast replicas and jars of stuff were well presented and explained by the staff here. A nicely spent afternoon that my niece and I enjoyed.
