    Had a wonderful time with my wife at the St. Louis zoo. Fun for the entire family.

    It can get crazy busy on the weekends so expect a crowd even on Sunday but given they have free admission it is totally worth a bit of a wait on certain exhibits. Though you might want to bring cash.

    Great for families or groups. Best of all its free! I never pay for parking. Just find a spot on the street and enjoy a short walk.

    Great animals! Best time to go is around 3 or 4- when the animals start to get hungry they get active :)

  • Tristi M.

    It's free! Bring your own picnic lunch and make a day of it. Plenty of places to sit and eat!

    They sell beer so you can deal with other people's screaming children but it's a zoo so expect children. Good exhibits. Parking is $15 but zoo admission is free.

    This is an amazing zoo, parking is a bit difficult but if you can find free parking, you can have a family fun day completely free, and nothing beats free.

    Wonderful zoo! Excellent exhibits with very content animals. The views of the animals are amazing, and the educational signage is very informative.

    Great zoo. Safari pass is a good deal if you want to do more than one of: the 4D simulator, the Children Zoo, the Railroad, the Stingray Experience.

    David Krause · August 22, 2013
  • Paul N.

    The seals/sea lions were so cool! However, wouldn't have spent so much time there had we known it closes at 5 on weekdays : (

    Become a zoo member. It pays for itself with parking passes, discounts, and tickets for stuff like the train and children's zoo.

    Great for the kiddos
