That is really to bad. I go to the Crystal Gardens everytime I am in Victoria. Their displays have improved in the last few years. It goes to show how the politics of government funded displays can shut down important educational facilities in the importance of profits. That is why it is important to support private displays such as Reptile World in Drumheller and the Victoria Bug Zoo. Places like these run on admission costs as well as donations. Overhead for displays are extremly high, and I have heard people complain over paying $5 for an adult addmission. These are the same people that will willingly pay $14 for a new movie, but when it comes to supporting tourism,especially local tourism they become cheap as hell. Just my opinion.
