It was a hot day but really enjoyed this place. Take your own water and portable fan. And hand sanitizer.

We went to the zoo for a 1st grade school field trip, so you might want to avoid a weekday if you go with a small/family group! There was at least one another school but they accommodated everyone really well in a relatively small space....More
