The kids will be 7 1/2 and 5 1/2. They cannot wait to go back to the Butterfly Garden and we are looking forward to visiting the Donkey Sanctuary for the first time. We have been to the Ostrich Farm and are not returning, not sure if we missed something but we found it boring. Anyone know anything about Phillips Animal Garden? Is it a good place, what is there to do, are they good to the animals and is it worth the money?

Any other suggestions for places to bring the kids? They have been to Aruba 3 and 2 times respectively but it will have been 2 years. Obviously we will be mostly at the pool (Surf Club) and beach but we are staying for 16 days and we want them to experience more on Aruba than just the water. Thanks

it is a great place to spend an hour or 2 with or without kids.

Does anyone specifically know if you can pet or feed any of the animals? My kids are more doers than watchers with animals.

When you pay your entrance fee, they will give you a bag of cut up carrots to feed the animals.

We love Phillip's Animal Garden. Been there 3 times now and each time he has added so many improvements since the first time we visited in 2011.
