We love visiting zoos while we travel and this zoo did not disappoint. You can spend anywhere from a few hours to a whole day. The zoo isn’t large but it has great exhibits and several children activities.

Hello there, Thank you so much for your review! As a nonprofit, we rely heavily on the feedback from our guests. I just wanted to clarify that all keeper talks and animal shows are free with admission. Thank you for your time!

My teenage daughter and I love to visit zoos when we travel. The Nashville Zoo is small, but pleasant. Not a wide variety of animals, but they seem well cared for. It’s a nice sized zoo; easily walkable, but nothing outstanding.

There are a few animals compared te Washington and San Diego but their environment is very good. All animals have big living area. The facility is very clean and nice.
