If you've never been to Space Farms Zoo and Museum, it's certainly worth a visit! There are more than 500 animals (100 different species) including lions, tigers, kangaroos, snakes, monkeys and bear at Space Farms and the awesome educational museum is filled with more than 50,000 artifacts of early American history. Unlike a big city zoo, see each of the animals up close! Special activities include snake handling (on weekends beginning in May) and baby animal nursery feedings, a large playground, and discussion groups.
Don't forget lunch or a snack in the NEW Extreme Pizza restaurant, now located at Space Farms! The restaurant will be open daily from 10 a.m. -9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. where you can eat in or order out - and Space Farms delivers all year around!
A day at the zoo wouldn't be complete without visiting the country gift shop for souvenirs and bags of feed for the birds and animals that freely roam the grounds with you!
FunNewJersey.com votes Space Farms as one of the most unique and one of the overall best overall zoos in all of NJ.
