Clean zoo with lots to see. The new sea lion exhibit is awesome. Allows you to walk through a tunnel under the aquarium giving great views! The show is also excellent and a great price. Worth the money! The food is also a great price and can be purchased as "value meals" such as many other fast food places -... More

This is an amazing zoo! I miss the penguins right now but love the seal exhibit and everything about this zoo, especially the price. Park nearby on the street for free and the entire day is yours for only the cost of getting there. What a gem!

This zoo was a great value for our family. Entrance was free and parking is free in the lots inside Forest Park. We only walked about 1 1/2 blocks from a free lot to the entrance. The train ride was fun and helped us get our bearings on the layout. We loved all of the animal. Great variety. Our one... More

Living in Chicago, I feel that we have great zoo's, but after coming here, I think we need to step up our game. The enclosures were unbelievable. Loved seeing the animals and venturing around. The train was a lot of fun and allowed us to see a lot of the zoo. It's a big place, and would be very difficult... More

The St Louis zoo is excellent and seems to be improved upon every year...and it's free. So it's a wonderful place to visit often as you stroll down the tree lined pathways and view the many interesting inhabitants.

We have been here many times and are on our second year in the "Zoo Friends" membership. The zoo's biggest perk is of course the fact that it's free. The main parking lot on the south side of the zoo is a pay lot, but that can be avoided by parking on the street in Forest Park if needed. There... More

This is one of the better zoo's that we have been to. Can't beat the cost either as admission is free. There are fees for a number of activities such as the train ride and and some shows, but those are still reasonably priced. There were several exhibits closed when we went but there was still plenty to see. One... More

This is a world-class zoo, so much to see and do, so many amazing animals--and all for free! I love to bring out-of-town guests here, and every time I come I see something new. Love the new Sea Lion Cove--the walk-through tank is so cool! This is a can't miss attraction.

Free zoo, but $15.00 to park, and several shows (sea lions, etc.) were for an extra fee. The park needs more signage, as we wandered lost a few times. But...all the animals are accessible and easyto see.

Visited this zoo in winter and had set no expectations at all. But it turned out to be a great experience! It is a very big zoo with wide variety of animals from almost all parts of the world and many of the species are rare today. Especially liked the primates zone, reptiles, butterflies and insects section. Got chance to... More
