This is a peaceful and interesting place for young children to see animals and learn about them. The train ride gets you around and the exhibits are well managed. It’s a surprise treat in busy Jerusalem.

It's a pretty a zoo as you can imagine. In the more modern style - no cages. The grounds themselves are a pleasure. The zoo has a system of feeding animals sort of in sequence so you can always find one that's to be fed.
