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.

The Wild Center was made for visiting with children. Hands-on exhibits let you hang out in a spiders web, make clouds, blow snow, and get up close with live animals.

Discover nearby attractions, such as a hike to the top of Mt. Arab where an old Fire Tower provides incredible views.
