One of the best zoos I have been to, with a friendly staff and a huge property for all the species of animals. You have the choice of walking the property or renting a bicycle for 2,3 or 4 people that makes it easier when travelling with children.

We spent about 5 hours at the Zoo; we had to leave to catch a plane, but we could have spent another couple of hours there and enjoyed it. We were there when they opened, and we were glad to be there early, as it got crowded by noon. They had some great exhibits, including the harby eagle, feeding the... More

Zoo Miami was an unexpected delight. The aviary is amazing, so large you forget that you are enclosed. Spotlessly clean with extremely friendly, helpful personnel. The animal enclosures were large and allowed animals lots of exercise and interaction. I highly recommend this zoo. Keep in mind that it is large and the bicycle vehicles are a real plus for families... More

We spent one day in Miami Zoo and it was a nice experience. We rented one of the bikes for 4 people and were glad we did that - saves lot of time and energy. Zoo is pretty big and to walk would probably be quite exhausting. Even though I expected more animals we enjoyed this beautiful Sunday afternoon very... More

We recently went to the Miami for my second visit. The zoo is nice with lots of exhibits. Plan for a long stay. We were there 2 hours and only got halfway through the exhibits. We also went around 3 pm and all the animals were waiting to be let in to be fed, or were already let in and... More

Very large zoo with a good variety of animals. a lot of restrooms and places to get something to drink. Very clean. A lot of walking so if you have children bring a stroller or rent a four wheel bike from them. Monorail available at several stops along the way

We had to return a second trip as there were too few animals out and about. A limited attraction, adequate for only the sound children. The large animals were scarce or were not available for viewing

This zoo has an open feel to it. The exhibits are set up so you feel like your right next to the animals. The animals are very active and entertaining. It takes about three hours at the least to go through every area. Lots of the visitors rent the bikes. The food is reasonably priced. The pizza was doughy and... More
