Best for younger kids, think primary grades and younger. It's like a mini Exploratorium/discovery museum/zoo.

Great place for little people. All the displays are set at their height so it's easier for them to try things. Great animal rescue center. Very nice to see the elaborate habitats created for the animal residents.

Be prepared that there is a $6 admittance fee for parking. Great for little kids as there are stations provided for them and a great selection of animals to see and explore. Wished there was more to this little museum. I wouldn't pay for the full admission price because the venue isn't that great. When I went last week, some of the animals, like the bobcat and coyote were not there.

From Our Editors

Traditionally, the zoo provides the comfort of seeing animals that could not make a surprise visit to your backyard; this is a comfort CuriOdyssey dispatches to give weight to its message of science education. The menagerie of nearly 100 mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and birds primarily showcases local species like the Channel Island fox and the red-shouldered hawk, which have relatively small niches that have been squeezed by environmental degradation and human encroachment. Native species can be glimpsed within a complex of 25 lush habitats, including a 4,000-square-foot walk-through aviary and a replica of the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Sunny, outdoor gardens fill more than 1.3 acres with plots that rotate with the seasons and plants to attract butterflies and hummingbirds for live study. Among the science exhibits, Forces explores fundamental forces in nature such as gravity and magnetism. All the exhibits are designed to enable close observation and experimentation characteristic of the scientific method. This aim is supported by shows, such as daily otter feedings—spied from behind the glass of a cross-sectioned riverbank—and a variety of classes.
