I have visited zoos around the world, and Denver's is one of the best I have seen. The habitats are interesting and large, and the animals appear healthy and well-adjusted. You don't see the neurotic pacing that so many smaller habitats and cages lead to,...More

We have the membership here and it's worth every penny! We go often, and that way the kids are ok if we only see a few select exhibits. One piece of advice is to park at the museum next door. It's not a far walk...More

The swimming area in the elephant enclosure is large enough to keep the animals cool on our hot summer days. In the winter, don't miss the Denver Zoo Wild Lights display. Truly worth a special visit!!

I have an issue with the small enclosures at most zoos. However, most of the exhibits here seem spacious and humane. The tiger exhibit is very small, but the elephant exhibit is very large. For the price, you see a lot of animals. We saw...More

The Denver Zoo is a great place to take the kids or family to see animals. The Zoo is clean and even if it's busy you can move and see other animals easily. They have times they show off the animals and it's awesome.
