Small and expensive - better to go to the Aquarium in Baltimore

Flag review

This is best for school groups, which have a lesson plan for kids when they visit. Located in the basement of the Commerce Department, you have to go through security and pay admission for a very small exhibition that contains only slightly more animals and fish than a small pet store.

Tips for Families

Go to the National Zoo or the Baltimore Aquarium, or any of the museums on the Mall.

Excellent for all ages

Flag review

We go here all the time - it's free, there is lots of space for the kids to run around, and the zoo officials are friendly and helpful.

Tips for Families

Parking is free if you buy a FONZ membership, which will pay for itself if you go more than once a year. If you travel by Metro, get off at the Cleveland Park station, so you will walk downhill to the zoo. If when you leave, go to the Woodley Park - Zoo stop, so you will walk downhill again. We pack a lunch - the zoo allows you to bring your own food, and it makes the trip even less expensive. It's best to go earlier in the morning on weekends, to avoid big crowds.
