We lost some animals do to the flood. I wasn't sure it was worth the daily price before, and now I really don't. I think if you get the family year pass, it would be a great place to spend summers and weekends. The grounds are beautiful to walk around, that is for sure.

This little zoo had a tragedy a couple years back from some flooding, but they're actively rebuilding! My friends and I were shocked a city as small as Duluth had a zoo-but what an amazing amenity in a small area! Usuri the tiger is gorgeous! The grounds were well kept, and ample Parking combined with an easy to get to... More

One of the most beautiful grounds you'll see. I'm not talking about manufactured flowers-I'm talking natural beauty. Not many small towns can boast about having a zoo. Love that it's not in the middle of Canal Park and all the concrete! Plus, the staff was so friendly and you could tell they truly loved their work!

We were recently visiting the Zoo in Duluth with our two small children. We all had a great time, would have spent longer but the weather was cold and the animals were quite inactive. Sad to see the devastation of the polar bear area from the flood, however, still plenty to offer. Great prices as well!

You won't need the whole day to enjoy what this zoo has to offer, but it is definitely worth the visit. Lots of variety, from the local wildlife to lions, tigers and bears! The monkey house is always fun, and the nocturnal exhibit is very interesting. It is sad about the Polar Bear exhibit having been damaged beyond a reasonable... More

It's a great zoo. We love the Australian animals. Our Como Zoo does not have them. The nocturnal exhibit is very interesting. An enjoyable time.

After the tragic flooding of the zoo, I would still say it's worth a visit. The events that occurred here were sad, but they are doing their best to reconstruct habitats and reestablish themselves. By visiting, you support this. Though, I miss the polar bear. :(

This was an ok zoo. They did have some unique animals that were enjoyable to watch. Several exhibits were empty. It took about an hour for us to see everything. I was glad we went but it was somewhat disappointing due to being so small plus empty exhibits. A fun way to spend an hour or two.

This was our first visit since the flood. We were surprised on how much was 'back to normal". Many of the animals were out and about but the zoo wasn't too crowded so we made it through in about two hours. The memorial to the animals they lost was a great addition. It made for a great afternoon, very worth... More
