Wonders of Wildlife

I have read that a lot of people going to Bass Pro but not to Wonders of Wildlife. I think WOW is very interesting. I have been twice and you see something different everytime you go. I think a lot of people think it is a museum filled with just "stuffed" animals. There are some in there but I would describe it as an indoor zoo. LOTS of different types of "live" animals from otters to jellyfish to sharks and alligators, etc. It is very cool and the kids as well as the adults would love it. I heard recently that they had lowered their admission price some to entice even more people. So make sure when you go to Springfield and to Bass Pro that you check out WOW.

Here is their website: http://www.wondersofwildlife.org

We saw it last year, and did enjoy it. I heard a few visitors talking about the high admission price. The lower price may help attendance.

We went last year, it was good. But I agree the price was too steep. What have they lowered it too?

I just heard recently that they have changed the name of it too. I believe it is something like the Zooaquarium, for the very reasons you were stating Jerm.

They just got a new leader.

Everything on the site has changed and right now, everything doesn't come up when you click on it.

It is a great place, we go atleast once a month. It has been fun watching the Sea Horses go from tiny little, to big full grown !!

They even had programs that kids can go to during the summer.
I really hope it succeeds as it gives us something that I can take my Mom or my granddaughter and both enjoy it equally well and be inside instead of out in the heat.
If God be for us, who can be against us?
