It's the top rated zoo in the country! And it's HUGE. Wear comfortable walking shoes! I have picky eaters so we tend to bring our own lunch & snacks. However, we have eaten in the rain forest cafe by the front gate. The prices were...More

Plan on a full day to get around. Lots of great exhibits and new ones on the way. Take a ride on the train ot Skyfari. Eat lunch in the Lied Jungle cafeteria. Bring your walking shoes and dress comfortably.

Being a Zoo lover, I had to include this zoo.I was not ready for how great this zoo, the grounds and the amount of animals that call Henry Doorly Zoo home. I definitely would put this Zoo right up there with the San Diego Zoo....More

I have visited the Zoo on multiple occasions and see something new every time. There is a lot of construction for expansion but it doesn't cause any problem and I am looking forward to see what is coming. Walking through the bird aviary was very...More

I have been looking forward to seeing this Zoo for a long time. My wife visited here last year and proclaimed it 'excellent.' So naturally we had to go during my visit to Nebraska. And I was not disappointed!!! Very unique exhibits. Really pleasant experience....More

Amazing exhibits such as the desert dome, rainforest, lagoon island, butterfly, aquarium (my favorite) and much more! Definitely one of the best zoos in the world.

We thought it would work well to visit early spring but some of the animals weren't out because it was too cool. I wouldn't go to the Lewis & Clark IMAX - it's the same video that can be checked out at our local library....More

Over 12 yrs., $19.95 for Zoo admission, $24.94 includes the IMAX Theater per person, well worth the cost!
My family and I are going to visit the zoo at the end of May and I was looking on the zoo's website to get more information on attractions and other tidbits - it says that the train is closed for the season. Any insight on this? Thanks!

We visited at the end of April and the train was running. However on our ride they did talk about the remodel of an area near the tracks. I would call to check. I wouldn't let that stop you though. We only did a short trip... More

Is there a yearly family pass or something similar? My family will be down there in August and I hoped to go more than once while we're there for a week, but don't want to pay the normal rate each time.

If you go on the website for the zoo all those ?? will be answered. We usually just go for a day but I believe if you buy a membership it allows you to go as much as you want. Hope this helps you!
