Lots of things going on, lots of animals to see. Just driving through you wouldn't think there was such a great zoo there, and you do not believe there is until you visit.

My kids who were 11, 10 and 7 and I recently attended this zoo. We had a great time. My kids who have went to multiple zoo's said this was a really nice zoo. We really enjoyed getting getting to see the animals up close. The Chimpanzee's here were the best I have ever seen. We enjoyed seeing them in... More

Visiting family in this lovely town, so I ventured to a small wonder of Kansas. This zoo has a lot to offer, the price of admission is only $4 per person and I felt like I got my moneys worth. It is well kept, flowers and plants are healthy and wonderful to look at, I saw no trash during my... More

We've been going to the Sunset Zoo since I was a kid. Now that I have kids it's one of our favorite things to do when we're back home. It's small and inexpensive with plenty to see. Located in Manhattan Kansas in the heart of the Flint Hills. Worth the trip!

We stopped on a whim, and I'm glad we did, what an incredible place! It's small, but is a wonderful setting and a great way to view the animals. Great deal for the price!

Specially with my the kid-o who has never seen must of the animals in real life. You can wall around and see... More

Stopped here while visiting a friend for the day. It was only $4 dollars to get in, so very budget friendly. The zoo was small and most of the animals were either sleeping or too far away to see. Some spots you were able to walk up close to the animals, which was nice. They even had an area where... More

It is small like everyone said, but it's a nice zoo. There is an exhibit a few different ways to interact more with the animals beyond just looking through the glass.

I decided to go to Sunset zoo with my children because we LOVE zoo's. I was very disappointed as well as hurt. These animals where NOT in an exhibit that were like their habitat! They had 1 tiger and he looked sad and not well taken care of! The sloth bear the same thing! Most of these animals looked as... More
