We were happy that we spent more than 3 hours in the zoo and place is excellent and well maintained. Except that we had to wait for a tram ride more than 45 minutes, our visit was quite satisfying...... As it was weekend, parking was not easy..... however, it did not take much time. Animals were well looked after and... More

St. Louis has a fabulous world class city zoo that's over 100 years old. Through the years, natural habitats have been created for the animals, scientific breeding programs have been established, and the zoo has been a leader in educational and ecological endeavors. It's truly a humane zoo. Lots of extras besides the animals like a fun mini-train ride or... More

You pay to park but the zoo is free. Great exhibits, everything is clean clean clean. The food is reasonably priced.

Lots to see and do at the zoo! Be sure to take a train ride! Rainy weather?! Visit the houses and tour the houses -- birds, reptiles, amphibians! Wonderful day with sunshine?! -- tour the giraffe, elephants, bears!

Such a great zoo. So many animals. Cool exhibits. Even some babies to see. Kids loved it and we spent parts of two days here. Oh, its free too with plenty of free parking to be found.

We love our Saint Louis Zoo so much that we have been zoo supporters for several years. We make it a point to visit at least once a year up to 3 or 4 times a year. You need to plan to spend 2 to 3 hours if you want to take most of it in. We like to go... More

The Saint Louis Zoo is growing, changing and developing into an even better zoo. River's Edge creates a beautiful natural setting for the animals, the new Sea Lion Sound is one of the most beautiful water exhibits around. If you get a chance, talk to a zookeeper, listen to a docet, or volunteer... You'll see one of the most dedicated... More

As we travel, the zoo is always first on our list if things to do. We think our zoo is the best yet. What a treat and admission is free. Check out the website for all the attractions and show times. We think the babies are 'the best'. Be sure to see the "Children's Zoo".

I think the San Diego Zoo is marvelous. HOWEVER, the St. Louis Zoo is what the SDZ wants to be when it grows up. Free admission for everyone! Fantastic exhibits! Tons of elephants! (I wrote that on purpose.) The River's Edge shows an amazing use of space and vegetation to highlight the environment of the animals. The Zoo constantly updates... More
