Lots of activities! Fun cooking lesson, although my 20-month-old has a hard time sitting still.

The animal guides were extremely sweet and patient, and my 3.5-year-old spent a long time afterwards at the play space.

It was cute. Some of the animals hadnt made it to the new location however. It was a nice ooen playspace, but not enough structure perhaps. I think my 12 month was a little to young for the animals. But a good rainy day play space.

My kids are six and seven and they had such a wonderful time at the art farm! I wish I would’ve gotten the name of the girl in the animal room, who said she was new, but she was just absolutely great with my older child who is such an animal lover.

Amazing atmosphere, staff is excellent with children. I love this place!
Good for younger children who cannot follow too much of instructions since children can freely choose and move around what they want to do.
We love the Art Farm and my kids go here often. We've also had a birthday party here. Professional staff and fun environment. Thank you Art Farm!

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.
