Gone are the days of smelly caged animals pacing back and forth, this is a free range zoo. I have not been to a zoo in years, however, I was so pleasantly surprised to see how well kept the animals are here. There are plenty of staff tending to their needs and cleaning up. Monkeys can climb trees and swing... More

I went with my daughter and my mother and my daughter had a blast. The little water park had my little one busy for almost two hour and she was thrilled at being able to feed the giraffes. I have to say that we were disappointed at the camel ride being closed and the animals did look a bit sad.... More

The zoo is always a nice experience, even more for the little ones. My first impression was bad because we headed first to the Wacky Barn, which consisted in a small space with 5 goats for children to touch and brush. That was it. Staff was rude and didn't gave any welcoming, information or other options. I got worried that... More

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 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
