Wow, just wow! I arrived at Rolling Hills Zoo for a meeting that was held in the Conference Center/Museum area. I was astounded by the unique entrance, pre-function space, and lovely meeting space...but most of all, I loved the access to the museum! I could have wandered for hours, enjoying the exhibits and indoor waterfalls. Honestly, it was the best... More

Hard to imagine that one man's dream created this wonderful zoo in the middle of Kansas. It is a beautiful area, with lots of space to both watch the exhibits and when necessary to rest. Not so large that it kills an entire day to go through the exhibits. Very friendly staff.

If you get to the Salina area, this is a MUST see. A fantastic zoo and wildlife museum. Hopefully you'll have the majority of a day to take in both venues. An incredible find for this part of the country.

Loved the zoo & museum! Highly recommend visiting this beautiful zoo. We were there on a gorgeous spring day. My dogs were barking (toes / feet were hurting) so I made good use of the tram. We all rode the tram, off & on. Walked most of it. Great gift shop! Restaurant was open but we didn't use. Animals &... More

My family spent 5 hours exploring and enjoying the zoo. From seeing the baby giraffe to seeing the rinos this was a place they want to visit again. It was well worth the time, money and family time. Thanks!

We have been to 20 zoos. This falls in the upper middle of the pack. The exhibits are large and Humane. They have a great kangaroo exhibit and rhino exhibit is wonderful too. There are a small animal and humans museum complete with animatronics and taxidermied animals. Great for all ages, but there is a lot of walking.

Rolling Hills Zoo is a beautiful place to take people of all ages. If you can't walk through it, the tram is awesome! The animals are so beautiful and very well taken care of.

Fun, clean, and a great 2-3 hour family adventure. Best earlier in the morning when the animals are active. The museum is a must see! You wont regret this trip.

The animals appear well cared for and healthy. Some of the exhibits are a bit older, but everything is kept as nice as possible for the resident animals. It is a great quick day trip for the kids and family.
