This may be the most eclectic attraction in New Jersey. This combination zoo and museum was founded in 1927. It has 100 species of animals—including tigers, lions, badgers, bears, bobcats, deer, elk, foxes, goats, jaguars, hyenas, kangaroos, buffalo, lemurs, leopards, llamas, monkeys, snakes, wolves and yaks. The largest private collection of North American wildlife in the world. Visit the famous stuffed remains of the Guiness Book of World Records' "largest bear in the world," Goliath. Eleven museum buildings house 50 antique cars and motorcycles, farm implements, early American tools, dolls, toys, clocks, tractors and American Indian artifacts can be seen in the multiple little museums on the property. Also, Space Farms has the second largest privately owned collection of antique firearms.
