Our family loves going to this zoo. We bought a friends of the zoo membership so we can go anytime we want. That alone has payed for itself over and over again. It does cost a little extra if you want to feed the giraffes or ride the train but still makes a day of fun with the family extremely inexpensive. The staff is always friendly and they do a great job keeping the zoo clean.My wife and I went there before the kid and enjoy it even more now that we have two little ones that love the place

From Chicago and visiting Springfield for the first time with the family. For the inexpensive ticket (compared to Chicago museums) this place was outstanding. Exceeded expectations and the whole family was engaged in the various exhibits. Did not think that the Center would be so large with quality, interactive exhibits. Very impressed and worth the day trip to Springfield!

It is a wonderful museum with loads to look at without being cluttered. It is a clean layout with a nice flow that invites you to amble along and browse around. The exhibits change fairly often so be sure to check out their website to see what is there or just show up, I'm sure it'll be interesting. It's a great way to exposure yourself to some culture at no cost, though they do accept donations and you should help support the arts!
