We get membership every year and go almost every weekend when it's nice. My kids know several animals by names and look for them every time we go in. So many things to see and do.

I have visited this zoo several times and always have the same opinion. The build very nice exhibits, however they don't seem to keep them up after building them. The grounds are very overgrown, they say it's for natural kansas look, but you can tell they just don't have the resources or its just bad workmanship.

The Sedgwick County Zoo is great. They keep the zoo in excellent condition compared to others that I've seen. I have two children, 6 and 10, and they love every visit. They always have maps handy and anyone working there has always been glad to help us also if we need it. Their exhibits are wonderful and they have plenty... More

By far the best zoo I have been to. They keep updating and bringing in new things to see. Now they have a totally redone indoor tropics area and the mile long elephant enclosure should be done next year! Best elephant enclosure in the nation! The staff is friendly and eager to talk to you about questions you have and... More

I'm not sure why I went there because it is very small. The grounds are nice and the food over priced with not a lot of selection. Not a lot of animals to see and the ones I wanted to see where not let out! If they had told me that certain animals would not be exhibited I probably would... More

A great morning or afternoon at this nationally and internationally recognized zoo which supports the breeding of rare and endangered species. Having over 2,500 animals of nearly 500 different species, Oh my!

We have visited a lot of zoos in our day, and some of our family even worked for a couple, we all agree, this was by far the best zoo we have ever been to. The exhibits are amazing, the layout is functional and exciting, the price is reasonable, the animals are all alert and healthy. Only complaint was the... More

Pros: Extremely large zoo. There are tons of walk-through aviaries. Penguins and representatives of many species from around the world are housed in this zoo. There are even some animals in the children's farm section of the zoo that we had never, or at least don't remember, seen before, including Karakul Sheep and Gyr Zebus. The exhibits are all very...
