It's been a couple years since I went here but, for being a 25 year old, at the time, who had never been to a zoo in my life, I found it to be an amazing experience. There weren't a ton of animals, but for the price & size of the zoo, I definitely couldn't complain. There was quite a bit of walking to do, which wasn't so much fun with a 3-year old, but what can you expect. He loved seeing all the animals though, as did my boyfriend & I. You can feed the giraffes, which is pretty cool.

We visited here during our Christmas vacation with our two year old son and had a blast. Tickets were reasonably priced, and our son kept running to and from the different areas within the museum. Each area was well kept and allowed our son to experience different types of activities. It was unique, too, experiencing it all in an old but well-kept building. Parking was easily accessible and the walk was short. I would highly recommend CMOE!

We recently had out of town guests and were looking for interesting sites in Evansville. We visited this museum and had a wonderful tour. Kayla gave us a very informative walk through, and we all enjoyed it so much. Everything on display is super clean and shiny and what a remarkable collection! We would highly recommend this museum - if you haven't visited it yet, make it a priority. Kudos to Mr. Bennett for such a top notch addition to Evansville!
