“Nature at its most exotic!”

The Children's Nature Center (CNC) is the only living museum within a 250-mile radius that exhibits exotic animals in naturalist habitats. The center hosts more than 150 unique creatures, ranging from 13-foot pythons to 1-inch-long dart frogs to lively stingrays. We have saltwater habitats and freshwater habitats, as well as numerous coral tanks with a wide variety of aquatic life. CNC features a collection of snakes, reptiles, and amphibians. Our living and inanimate exhibits are all designed to educate guests on animals, wildlife, and the environment.

This is a very hands on museum, my whole family loved it. We learned so much about each animal, they have a wide variety, including a rare albino boa that belonged to Michael Jackson, and a fly-river turtle, which is known as the living the fossil. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed our time there. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.
