Cute zoo

A cute, well-sized zoo for the area. Plenty of volunteer opportunities and nicely put together habitats. One of the area's little jewels.

Small zoo good size for young children. There were plenty of empty cages the day we went so we only saw a few animals.

Decent-size zoo for a relatively small city that is Manhattan. Just as charming as the city itself. The animals are healthy and have big habitats for them to move around and be comfortable

This is such a well-kept zoo. The exhibits are very clean. The animals look healthy. There are improvements being made. We especially enjoyed the monkeys!

Sunset Zoo is not a large sprawling zoo that you will spend whole day at - not even a half a day, but it has a nice layout; with the exception of one spot, it is a very easy stroll. The exhibits are well maintained. They also sponsor fun events throughout the year.

It is a good place to spend a couple of hours with kids, the number of spices is not that large. It is not a at the level of a large zoo, but is a great place for the local community.

I was shocked to experience a small time zoo, Sunset Zoo, in Manhattan Kansas last May 2014 while we were in town for my son's graduation from K-State. Concrete steps were in bad condition and falling apart, many animals were not available or had empty exhibits. I was also shocked and frustrated to find out there were no wheelchairs in... More
