This 116-acre zoo and museum affords opportunities to observe animal behavior and to marvel at the diversity of life on our planet. We've visited several family attractions in Connecticut that are grossly overpriced. At $10 for adults, $8 for children under 12 (as of 2012), Action Wildlife is one of the state's best family entertainment bargains.
Admission fees cover only 25 percent of the non-profit Action Wildlife's operating costs: The facility is obviously founder Jim Mazzarelli's passion. We loved sharing an animal adventure in an uncrowded setting. Visit Action Wildlife spring through fall.
