Tips for Families

If you are planning to visit the Aquarium and Insectarium as well, consider purchasing a combo pass to save money. All three can be visited in one day but it makes for a very long day for the kids and you might miss some exhibits.

Even in the summer when it gets excruciatingly hot and humid the Audubon Zoo is a great destination. There's plenty of shade and places to sit and catch your breath. Bring your own stroller.

This zoo ranks near the top for me, alongside San Diego Zoo.  Lots of animals, layout is awesome.  It's kind of out of the way from the touristy area, but not horrible to get there.  Hop on the street car and look for the shuttle van.  I personally recommend skipping the shuttle and walking through the park.  About a 20 min walk if I remember cor...

I had a great time at the Zoo during my visit in July. They had some wonderful animals the only problem was that the summer heat had got to a lot of the bigger animals. The bears, tigers. lions & Elephants were all sl...

The people rating this zoo five stars...I have no words. The Audubon Zoo is a typical zoo. It's nice, but it's not five stars. I'd give it four if they had water fountains and didn't charge $3 for a bottle of water. Yep, it's one of those places. You will fear that your child says "I'm thirsty" because this can mean another $10 as the family tries to rehydrate. The few restaurants were overpriced chicken fingers. You're best bang-for-your-buck calories are from the Hagen Daas near the central hub and reptile house. The train around the zoo, not a true train, is $5 a person. The carousel costs more. The dino exhibit costs more. There were two other things that cost more that I don't recall. The animals were h...

I hate to bash on the Atlanta, Knoxville and St. Louis zoos... but WOW! This is the cream of the crop. The new water area for kids? I can't even tell you what a big hit this was for a small addition to our admission. We arrived at opening ...

My favorite things about the exceedingly well-thought-out Audubon Zoo: SIZE & LAYOUT: Absolutely perfect for seeing everything in one day without feeling rushed. You can leisurely walk through all the exhibit while reading the factoids surrounding each area, as well as catch a couple shows throughout the day, and still get through the whole park before it closes. As a bonus, it's laid out in a way where there is minimal backtracking if you follow their suggested path on the maps. It's not a massive zoo like Disney's Animal Kingdom, but it's not too small like you might find with state zoos or other non-national zoos. DESIGN/FUNDING: Either more money is funded toward the Zoo compared to the Aquarium and Inse...

Love this zoo - its easy to walk through and to get relief from the heat they have spray misting fans all over to get cooled off!  There are two white tigers and a baby orangutan and they have a nice petting zoo w/free-roaming g...
