I may be a bit biased, but I love my hometown zoo. It's the perfect size for even the youngest animal lovers to enjoy. The collection includes a great variety of animals with exhibits that are easy to see. My personal favorites are the orangutans,...More

Traveled 2 hours to come see the lovely Erie Zoo but it was closed, contradicting what the website stated. I suggest calling in advance because apparently you never know when they're going to close at random.

This zoo was fun. There were a lot different animals and it was right around Halloween so the spooky decorations were a lot of fun. They regularly have special feedings and talks. My favorite were the farm animals.

This is a nice zoo with nice exhibits. Its a small zoo so you can do it in an afternoon. Great for small kids.

This was a nice small-city zoo. Animals seemed well cared for and there were zoo personnel around to answer any questions. Off-season ticket price was only $8. I recommend taking the map they offer to make sure you don't miss anything.

This zoo has such a nice, laid back atmosphere. You can tell the people actually care about the animals. Just such an enjoyable family friendly vibe.

This is a nice small town zoo, perhaps a little "tired", but well worth the low price of admission. We spent 2 hours here and enjoyed our visit. Those crazy orangutans and their antics playing "hide and seek" under their blankets was more than hilarious....More

Hi, I am sorry but I do not know the bus routes in Erie. You could call the bus transit terminal and ask. Sorry that I am not more help. Enjoy the Zoo. We loved it. Jennifer
