    A definite must if you are ever in Omaha. Been going here since I was barely old enough to know the difference between a rhino and an elephant!

    Don't leave without visiting the swamp and the nocturnal animals. It's the coolest place there!

    Amazing zoo. We bought a pass because with my family it was paid for in two trips. But we go again and again. Totally worth it. It took several trips for us to see everything.

    This zoo has grown over the years as Omaha's wealth has exploded with three billionaires living in the city. Easily one of the world's best zoos.

    Love the zoo. So many great things GS to see and do. I could sit and watch the sharks all day.

    Allison Brown-Corson · December 31, 2013
  • Christine H.

    If you usually visit in the morning, try coming by in the afternoon (or visa versa). You get to see a lot of different animal behaviors at different times of day!

    Christine Hawks · December 19, 2013

    I loved this zoo but I wish the big cat exhibits were a little nicer.

    Take the sky tram (to your right when you walk in) to the back and work your way forward--less crowds and great views of animals on the tram!

    For the love of God, don't go on Saturdays if you value time and gas money. Parking is an absolute nightmare.

    A terrific zoo! So much to see and do, it's hard to get it all in in one day. I still would highly recommend going there.

    My dad and I have come here every summer since I was in the 2nd grade. In 21 now and we still make a point to come every year. On of my favorite places on earth.

    Awesome zoo well worth the visit

    Pam Cooke · July 13, 2013
  • Miles R.

    I agree with everyone, the aquarium *is* amazing. However, it's also very popular. Parents with strollers and young kids take note - it's cramped and slow-moving on busy days, and there are few exits.
