This was terrific. A cooking class, a music class and play with animals as well as crafts. Very structured with some open choice. Lots of fun. Great value.

My 2 1/2 year old absolutely loved it!
I didn’t catch her name but she was great showing and teaching the kids about the different little animals they had. Due to the great job of young lady running the petting zoo our first time experience was awesome!

The art teacher Lina was great with the kids. Excellent experience!
It was so much fun! My daughter’s first intimate encounter with little animals that are tamed and safe. She had so much love for them and so did the little animals - who showed so much love to her. She had a blast.

A little slow for my two year old. I think a faster pace without repetition or explaining concepts would have worked better. It’s true, less animals. We only petted a little tank turtle, chicken and a lizard. There was another bird as well. The open play part was not included.. and if it was it wasn’t set up so my child kind of just ran around prior. It’s such a big space it was a bit distracting for twos. Also, bathrooms are not within the space and it seemed construction workers were using them. There was construction happening upstairs and my child was scared of the banging a few times. However, very nice art and it was all tied together nicely into a theme with a book.

They moved fe weeks ago to another place that isnt as fun as the one they were before. the art class was ok but they were having a music class at the same time and it is very distracting for my kid who really wanted to be at the music class. very few exhibitions of animals compare with the animals they had before.
