I love this place. I love the experiences of the different gardens that make you feel like you are visiting different areas of the world. The statues throughout are beautiful as are the fountains. My favorite is the rose garden, it is so beautiful and smells wonderful! We went to see the lights with my 3 year old niece and it was so much fun to go with her. I'm pretty sure her excitement made it more enjoyable for us all. They did a great job, it was very creative.

Took our nephews here this past Saturday was super impressed. They had such an awesome time. The food was much better than at any other zoo we've visited. We loved the walk through Australian exhibit and how close we felt to so many of the other animals as well (like the red panda who was in reaching distance!!!). The layout was great as we didn't have to constantly look at the map to make sure we wouldn't miss anything.

Husband and I went here for Valentine's Day and it was so so amazing! I loved the Egyptian exhibit! I can not believe this is free!!!! We got there late and had to walk kind of fast through everything but what we did see was amazing. We are most certainly going back again soon! Highly recommend this art museum to everyone who loves museums. It's more like a historical museum rather than just an art museum. I completely believe it's a great place to bring anyone.
