Especially the snakes. The African green mamba is exquisite. There is nothing like the green and the black mamba, they will stare into your eye and catch your soul from behind the glass. It is an awesome experience staring into the eyes of the nature’s...More

Even though it was *super* hot, we enjoyed our visit. We walked through the dinosaur exhibit - which would have been more enjoyable if we had kids that were super into dinosaurs. As adults, we were more interested in all of the animals available to...More

With a membership we can come often so don’t feel the need “to get our money’s worth” in one trip. Nice to go when it opens and leave at lunch (and before it gets hot).

As a native Houstonian, I may be biased, but I LOVE our zoo. Not just normal family zoo trips, but the Houston zoo also has a ton of Adult only events. You should definitely check the zoos schedule if you're traveling this way.

$18.00 por adultos , $14.00 por los niños. Yo compré un “City Pass” que es una oferta para varias entradas a parques, museo, y zoológico. Esa oferta está anunciado en el internet.
