Overall a very fun zoo! Get to see the animals a lot closer than you would imagine. The Safari was amazing. They drive you out into the field where the animals are and you get to see them up close and personal. We got to even watch a cheetah run pretty fast to chase a stuffed animal on a lure. Pretty amazing if you're asked me! If you're in the area you can probably spend the whole day here and laugh along with the funny things the monkeys do or be amazed at what some of the other animals do!

Fun, fun, fun! I took my girls (2 and 4) to this museum on a weekend trip to SD. It's a small museum from what we are used to but such an interactive museum. Every square inch of this museum is well utilized. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and wanted to still stay longer but it was closing. Everything at this museum is so cool! From storytime, pretend play sections, art studio, bubbles, greeting chickens, watering the garden and etc... it is so well thought out!

This place is great for people who have an interest in fossils/dinosaurs/earth science. I had planned to take my younger brothers here for a few weeks and we finally made it in yesterday afternoon! One of my brothers has wanted to be a paleontologist since birth (seriously) and he was extremely excited to finally check it out. We walked in and were greeted by two workers - both very friendly. We purchased tickets and went on in.
