    World class, particularly impressive for a city of this size. Their dedication is shown in their constant improvements. As such, there is ongoing construction that does not deter from the exhibits.

    This Zoo has an amazing amount of animals of all types! The "Cool Zoo" water park looks awesome and a blast for kids literally. Prices are a lot higher than BREC Zoo. They do offer student discounts!

    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.

    If you go during Mardi Gras it's almost empty, like having the park for the elite. Lol

    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!

    Get a frozen banana. I'm not a fan of zoos and this one did not change my mind. I do like it was clean but the enclosures are way too small for the animals.

    Saturdays are very crowded so go during the week, if possible If you have children, bring a wagon and a small ice chest; it keeps everyone happy and cuts the cost of the visit.

    During the Great Depression "Monkey Hill", an artificial hill, was built to show the kids of flat New Orleans what a hill looks like. Local folklore calls Monkey Hill the highest point in New Orleans.
