Our family just loved this place. The coolest works of art and so much to see. What a creative mind! So many different and big pieces. Couldn't pick just one favorite piece. Great place for families and art lovers.

Swetsville zoo has no live animals? How can it be a zoo say you? The owners have taken all kinds of farm implements and turned them into dinosaurs, elephants, etc. It is great place to spend and hour or two. Kids can run and enjoy....More
