Great place to take children. $6 adult , $1 children price gets you into two zoos. The larger one has the seals in the center - when you enter, check out the feeding times for seals, polar bears & penguins. Also there are usually a few short kid friendly presentations about wildlife. My son was once chosen to be colorfully dressed as the best parts for each animal. Bring snacks and drinks - there is food service inside but it tends to be expensive - plenty of places to sit and eat and take a break - esp. around the seals. Humid and misty in the tropical forest exhibit but monkeys, snakes and bats are great to watch (notice the rats scurrying around the floor of the bat exhibit!). Penguin/puffin house is nice and cool on a hot summer day. You can sit here for a while and take a breather. Smaller Children's zoo has petting zoo.
