Since we’ve moved to Omaha, every single person we’ve met has asked, “have you been to the zoo?” No. We’re not really zoo people. We finally gave up and figured we had to check out the zoo. Wow! It really is amazing. So much that...More

We had so much fun. There was so much to see even during the winter months. We were there for several hours and still did not see everything.

I've been to this zoo many many times and every time I go something new is going on. I've been to many zoos in different countries and no one gets even close to Omaha's museum. Definitely number one attraction of Omaha.

I've been to a LOT of zoo around the country with my family. This is hands down one of our favorites! Well done Omaha!!! You've created a very classy, interesting, and entertaining zoo.The desert (and basement underneath) were my favorite by far.

It was the typical zoo, The only issue I have is the indoor dessert. I have asthma and the smell was unbearable especially once you go through the bat cave. I thought the smell was confined but it was not.

Yes, you can see the zoo in a day. You will have a long and enjoyable day but you will not be able to take in all of the attractions. So allow 2 days if possible, especially in warm weather. Many of the exhibits are... More
