On a scale of one to ten, I would give this zoo a five. The animal exhibits are ordinary, with the exception of the Wings of Asia aviary. This exhibit was very good. Beautiful foliage, very well laid out, with a great selection of birds. A guide came up to us & very pleasantly accompanied us on our walk pointing... More

We had a great time. Everything was perfect. We took our 3 year old which is in love with animals. I do hope they finish the construction soon. It confused us alot. Will be back soon

We visited Zoo Miami after a cruise and had about 5 hours to kill before our flight. I love the zoo and have been to many all over the country but Miami Zoo is the best zoo I have ever been to. It's layout was wonderful. The walkways was level and extra wide so an age could walk them without... More

I've been going to the zoo since it opened many years ago and always loved being there. Right now the zoo is being updated so it seems that everything is in disarray. We found poor signage and were constantly going in circles trying to find some exhibits. Previously knew my way around easily but after 4 hours still missed many... More

First off a few tips: - plan on a full day, as there is more than enough activities for the family, if you have the energy.. - buy your tickets online or via groupon. The line to get in can take 15 minutes or so on a busy weekend, if you buy and print you can go straight in! -... More

Went with my mom, hubby, and 2 and a half year old. So much zoo almost missed a portion of it. There is a monorail tram that you can ride so you don't miss all the exhibits. There are four entry/exit points for this tram. It does cost $3.50 per person unless after 4 pm. There is a fun water... More

This is the first time to Miami with our 6 year old son. I'm used to different activities in Miami so I was happy to see there was a zoo there. The price is quite reasonable compared to other zoos. We rented a bike to go around the zoo. That was a lot of fun and our son enjoyed it... More

I loved this zoo!! The price is so cheap per person too and if you show triple a card it's even cheaper! It is big! Bigger than my husband and I thought. We loved how the animals were not confined. They had freedom and kind of like a moat around everything so they couldn't get out but not stuck in... More
