“linger in this glorious place…”

The Wall Street Journal

A ticket to The Wild Center is actually good for two consecutive days, and the 115-acre campus has more than enough to keep you engaged and entertained the whole time you’re here.

Whether you are a large family or a bus tour, we offer special rates for group visits of 10 or more.

Visiting With Children

The Wild Center was created with families in mind. From the hands-on exhibits that play music, let you hang out in a spiders web, make clouds, blow snow or mimic a walk on a bog to the live animals and boxes of activities in the sun-filled Naturalists Cabinet, the Center invites inquisitive explorers.
