    One of my favorite zoos! Hit up exhibits during feedings and the keepers will do chats as they feed the animals! You'll learn so much and see active animals!

    Beautiful zoo. Not the most comprehensive display of animals, but top notch local section complete with bayou food and the white alligator. Water play area looks awesome, but also costs extra.

    Lack of signage to walk from St. Charles St. Trolley is astounding. Unless you ask around, you wouldn't know where to get off, which way and how far to walk. For a world class zoo you'd expect more.

    When the monkey escapes, they lock you inside until they catch him. He's a crafty little monkey. This is the second time he has escaped this year!

    If you plan on visiting the zoo, aquarium, and insectarium and have 5 or more people in your family, consider getting a membership. We are from out of town and used it for one week. It saved us money!
