    The zoo is awesome (and improving! I can't wait to see the new penguin exhibit this fall!)! The membership is well worth it, especially if you have children that enjoy the zoo like mine does.

    Be sure to visit the new Penguin Coast - a great learning experience and the African penguins are not bad, either!

    Stay cool at the Zoo this August! Every Tuesday guests will receive a 25% discount admission and every Thursday the Zoo stays open until 7pm, offering live music as you stroll through the park.

    Chimpanzee house and the sifakas are adorable. Great kid friendly zoo. A manageable morning trip. You can see animals up close. I think it's better than the national zoo!

    Nice settings. Could use more exhibits, expanded space for some like cheetahs. See before and after what fort worth did a number of years back.

    There is an African watering hole includes rhinos, zebras, leopards, cheetah, chimpanzees. Walk through #1-rated Children's Zoo, the Maryland Wilderness and visit the arctic at Polar Bear Watch.

    Opened in 1876, this is generally considered to be the third oldest zoological park in the U.S. This zoo breeds the greatest number of African black footed penguins.

    Haven't been here in 10 years...not as nice as the DC zoo but still a really nice chill place to walk around. The Africa section is definitely the highlight

    Our zoo is amazing! I love it! Don't listen to the snobs who say its boring or dirty. Sorry our animals don't recreate animal planet scenes.

    The guys at the food kiosk by the giraffes and elephants offer the best customer service in the whole zoo!

    If you come more than twice a year, the membership is usually a good value

    Gift shop is not inside the zoo. Makes no since so if you enter through the back gates you have to ride a tram to get to the gift shop.

    Bring your own drinks & snacks because most off the vending machines are broken or empty. Also, the concession near the elephants is closed.

    FONZ Members, they don't offer you free admission any longer due to a "severed relationship" between the Maryland Zoo and the National Zoo. Bummer.

    On hot days, duck into the Chimpanzee Forest; it's markedly cooler in there.

    They should charge less. African exhibit is under construction. No zebras or rhinos. The aviary is closed. Under construction. The children's area is weak. Building a new penguin exhibit as well.

    Relaxing, but not a terribly exciting zoo relatively speaking, especially for such a large city as Baltimore.
