“Nature at its most exotic!”

The Children's Nature Center (CNC) is the only living museum within a 250-mile radius that exhibits exotic animals in naturalist habitats. The center hosts more than 150 unique creatures, ranging from 13-foot pythons to 1-inch-long dart frogs to lively stingrays. We have saltwater habitats and freshwater habitats, as well as numerous coral tanks with a wide variety of aquatic life. CNC features a collection of snakes, reptiles, and amphibians. Our living and inanimate exhibits are all designed to educate guests on animals, wildlife, and the environment.

This is a very hands on museum, my whole family loved it. We learned so much about each animal, they have a wide variety, including a rare albino boa that belonged to Michael Jackson, and a fly-river turtle, which is known as the living the fossil. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed our time there. I highly recommend it if you are in the area.

Wanted to see this but unfortunately we weren’t able to because it’s no longer at the address stated in the Roadtrippers website. Per the Children’s Nature Center website they are now at Mesa Mall 2424 Old US HWY 6 & 50, GRAND JUNCTION, CO 81505.
