Museum of Prehistoric Life

In the Museum of Prehistoric Life, see and interact with life-size examples of animals from the past. Then experience encounters with animals in our Walk-Thru Adventure.

I enjoyed my experience with my account managers service, This was my first time buying and investing BTC(BITCOIN), and... while there were definitely some missteps on my end, your customer support was excellent and made it all fairly painless, and at the end of everything I got my complete profits. I just tried with a little amount of $500 and just within 7 working days I got a total return of $6,500 I am really grateful ma'am some of your competitors could learn a thing or two from you Mr. Jamal Abdulrahman contact him if you are having difficulties in investing on forex/stock trading.

The owner was our tour guide and was awesome and very knowledgeable on all the animals. Highly recommend this experience for kids and adults.

5 Stars We had a great time. Looked at going to the St. Louis Zoo and then looked at the Big Cat place in Indiana. Both... required appointments and said masks required. That's ok, but I'm not into wearing masks outside in 90°+ temps. Saved time and money staying local and helped boost the local economy. Also no parking Fee at AWA. After figuring travel expenses to other areas, we still spent less and had more time to enjoy the day. Also I like that AWA keeps expanding and planning to add more, so supporting them helps then do just that. I highly recommend attending.read more

We absolutely loved this place! We went to celebrate my son’s 6th birthday and we purchased the behind scenes tour. My... son loves animals so it was epic for him. Afterwards he jumped up and down and said “this place is amazing!!!” We felt able to social distance. It wasn’t too crowded. Only about 60% of people were wearing masks unfortunately, but it was easy to stay distanced from those who weren’t. I only wish there was more to do in the area because it was a 3 hour drive for us. But it was WELL worth it! Even my 2 year old loved it!read more

I visited your park today aug. 22 2020. With my son-and his wife and 2 grandkids. We had a terrific time! We did the... drive thru first then we walked through it. Amazing wonderful and so exciting! The kids got to feed the animals and my grandson got to see his favorite animal foxes! The kiddos got ice cream for a special treat. The park was so clean and the staff were very friendly. The only thing I wish they had was a posted sign of what kind of animals were in the drive thru. I know they all seemed to get along but wasn’t sure what some of them were. I hope this place keeps growing. Will visit again! Thank u all!read more

Randy the camel bit my Dad! I understand animals can bite, but the staff was not very helpful. He was bleeding a lot... and not one staff member asked if he was ok. They finally got a first aid kit that wasn’t very stocked or helpful for large animal bite wounds. We asked questions about infection and acted as if we were dumb to be concerned about infection. They never asked my Dad’s name, info or nothing. I had been encouraging my son and daughter to feed Randy. After he bit my Dad, he was left out to take food from other patrons. We are not people to sue, but others be warned.read more

We literally had elk, camel, zebra, buffalo and a variety of other animals eating out of our hand and practically sitting in our lap! It is obvious this family has a passion for rescue animals as they have hand built so many of the enclosures to give the animals a lot more activity and space! If you have kids that love animals, don’t miss this adventure! We will definitely be going back.read more

The walk through the park is perfect for those with short legs that wear out fast. By the time my daughters wanted to be held we were back in the gift shop!

My family planned a family trip to Arcola, IL so visit the Aikman Wildlife Adventure. It was worth the drive, hotel... stay and visiting on a super hot/humid day. Everyone was absolutely polite from the time we checked in until we left. The ladies in the gift shop were very informative- answered all of our questions. A friend suggested the 'behind the scene' tour is a must if we go! We had a group of 4 adults and my daughter. James knew all the animals by name and their personalities. Knowing that he loves this sanctuary from the land to the animals, it was a great experience for us to pet, see and feed the wildlife animals. We cannot wait to go back and visit. Thank you!read more

My college-aged son and I had a great time here yesterday. The Wagon Tour is a must. We got to pet the heads of... zebras, camels, bison, a Highland cow, and more. The animals come right up the the wagon side bars and eat the food pellets you and the guides spread in front of your feet. The narration during the tour is delightful. All the animals have names, they tell us about the personalities of some of the most prominent animals, they explain information about the different species. I'm still amused by the encounters we had with Randy the camel. He follows the wagon almost all the way around the trail. What a character! The place is family owned and run. The animals appear content and well-cared for, which is a big plus! As an animal lover, I was pleased to see many species I didn't know existed. From the road, you can't see all there is to offer. It looks small. The Wagon Tour was, I think, 45 minutes. Pure delight. Lots of opportunities to encounter and feed smaller animals. All employees we met were very welcoming and eager to talk about the animals and the Park. It was the dream of one of the three adult sons. There are many plans for expansion. I'm looking forward to returning.read more

The wildlife center is awesome. If you have a service dog, you can do the drive though, but not the walk though.

Our family learned so much about... all of the animals and we were so happy to see them in beautiful and spacious surroundings. They are very well cared for. And we were blown away that we could get so close to so many of these animals...and hand feed them! We highly recommend Aikman Wildlife Adventure.read more

My husband and I took our two year old. We opted to drive through in our own vehicle but next time we will take the... guided tour so we can get a close up of the animals. There are so many too see! The petting zoo walk through was nice but not very many animals to pet. Service was great at the gift shop and "Watering Hole" Restaurant. Beautiful scenery, friendly people and a variety of animals. It's also nice that it's so close to home. Keep up the great work!read more

My daughter had her wedding ceremony here on Saturday in "The Loft" (inside the barn). I can't begin to express my... thanks to James, his family and staff! They are so nice and were fun to work with planning the wedding. We hadn't done any of the tours with the animals but were able to walk around and see them and it is such a neat experience to have something like this in Arcola. It is peaceful and beautiful and would highly recommend checking it out!!read more

My family and I loved this place! Decided last minute to do the Wagon ride instead of the drive thru and I am very... happy we did. The staff was very informative(and brave lol),spoke about each of the animal's personalities and made sure they came on both sides of the wagon. The animals are very well taken care of and you can tell everyone there takes pride in their work. Very impressed! My daughter's can't wait to come back and see Fabio & the walk thru the petting zoo 🙂read more

Went there yesterday and had a great time! We took the wagon tour..best way to go through because you get to stop and... feed the animals that come right up to you. All the staff is very very nice...it's clean, the animals are well taken care of and you can tell they are happy animals. Great for getting photos up close. Nice little snack bar to cool down with ice cream or refreshing drink. Will be going again...can't wait to see this place grow in the coming years. God Bless them and Go Visit!read more
