    Feeding the giraffes was the most amazing thing I have ever done! The zoo keepers were very informative, and so nice. The new elephant area was incredible!

    With all the new renovations to the elephant exhibit and the previous renovation to gorilla exhibit, the Houston Zoo has only gotten better. If you plan on going, make sure you are there early.

    Membership pays for itself quickly if you're a family of at least three and your kid(s) likes to be outdoors. The children's zoo part is great for younger kids: covered playground & splash pad!

    I'm 23 and i really enjoyed this place, imagine if you are a kid or if you spend time with your family; in my opinion you can miss the dinosaur pavilion,if you're with children you have to take them.

    If you expect to see a lot of animals during Zoo lights, don't bother. The reptile house is open, and you can see the giraffes sleeping. There are however a lot of trees with Christmas lights on them.

    This is a perfect attraction for family members. They also offer a summer camp for children up to 6th grade I believe to get acquainted with the zoo and become comfortable with the animals.

    Free admission on the first Tuesday of each month. Great place for families, but also a great idea for a first date. If not from Houston, prepare for intense humidity and Texas heat.

    Excelente lugar para los niños pero debe tener al menos 4 horas y revisar los espectáculos diarios, es al aire libre por lo que se debe tomar en cuenta el estado del tiempo.
