This place is a hidden gem! Go here instead of the overpriced, overcrowded aquarium next door. My little girl loves it. There's a small train, a carousel, a butterfly garden, lot's of little paths for exploring, cool toys, a tree house, a dinosaur garden, wild bunnies etc. Small details add to its charm. All the workers are lovely and kind too. By the way, this place is in a completely safe area next door to the aquarium. We took the ferry over from center city Philadelphia which was also part of the adventure!

Train ride not working. Butterfly ride not working for 6+years. Take it off the map. Sprinklers not working. I think a waste of money overall. Wouldn't reccomend.

I went as a chaperone for my son's kindergarten class trip. The kids loved it! They went on the carousel and train ride, played on the playground, climbed dinosaurs, went through tunnels, held butterflies, and generally ran amok looking at everything. It was a little exhausting chasing 4 rambunctious boys at once, but I'm looking forward to coming with my own family at a later date.

Located next to the aquarium and included in PHS reciprocal membership (listed as a free garden if you are a member). Friendly employees at the butterfly house and gift shop/admission. Cute exhibits that encourage imagination and free play. Unfortunately, it was not well maintained and many areas were closed.

Beautiful place. Not sure if children enjoy it.
