Came down here on my day off of work not knowing what to expect. It's a smaller zoo but there are plenty of animals. Despite the cold rainy weather many of the outdoor animals were outside including the snow leopards, amur tiger, and red pandas. The seals were active as was the river otter. The indoor exhibits had plenty too... More

Have spent lots of time a this zoo and watched it continue to grow over the years. this time we came with a friends little 19 month old. He strode around the place like he owned it, pointing the animals, patting the goats and having a blast. He slept very soundly that night, don't think we had to use the... More

Visited today with our daughter who is a freshman at Illinois State University. Weren't expecting much but were immediately impressed by the Wallaby Walkabout and continued to be impressed by all of the exhibits. Sure, not a ton of animals but some cool ones we don't see at too many other zoos such as singing dogs, reindeer, and the original... More

Small zoo yet very many different animals to enjoy. From reindeer to Longhorns to Tigers and Snow Leopards. This zoo delivers on the variety of animals. There's a red panda, Sun Bear, Wallaby and a beautiful Cockatoo. Many more but enjoyed walking through the zoo since it has been years since I have last visited.

Small zoo -- can get through the entire experience in a minutes. I believe they do offer classes to children to learn more about animals, but have never signed my kids up.

We were impressed with the variety of animals here for such a small place. The variety made it interesting and watching the seals and otter feedings is a lot of fun. We look forward going back just to enjoy a day of sketching some of the wildlife. The zoo is clean and family friendly

Miller Park Zoo is a wonderful mid-sized zoo. You can see animals up close and most are in enclosures that imitate natural habitats. Be sure to attend the sea lion training session. The zoo has three sea lions, two of which are very young. You will get to see how they train them so that vets can handle them for... More

My husband and I stopped here on a day trip from Springfield. We really enjoyed it! There were many more animals than we we're anticipating. The experience was totally worth the price of admission. All of the exhibits were well maintained, and there's more to come!
