I went to the zoo this past weekend with my boyfriend. We got our tickets through a corporate deal, which gave us a nice discount. Without the discount, it would have been ~$64 for the two of us, which is a bit pricey if you have a large group. There are other "experiences" throughout the zoo that you can pay... More

This zoo has come so far over the years its amazing. It is clean, fun, informative and great for kids. We went for the total experience tickets, which were a bargain for what you get. Must see's are the butterfly room and congo. There is so much to see and do, plan to stay from opening to close!!

There are two admission prices here one is the base admission and then you pay additional for addons or pay the total experience for all addons. After doing this for the first time I would have just bought the base admission and picked addons like wild Asia monorail, jungleworld, and Congo gorilla forest. There is no special animal you would... More

This was a terrific experience, I have always loved London Zoo and was a bit dubious really as I initially had Central Park and the Bronx confused as both were listed as NY Zoo 😕 The attractions are really educational and the compounds are huge and spacious for the most important part of any Zoo....the animals themselves. !! I would... More

I've been to the zoo a few times and it has changed over the years. One thing that will impress you immediately is the sheer size - it's huge and there's plenty of walking. Take time to visit http://tripplanner.bronxzoo.com/ to plan your trip to make the most efficient use of your time. There is no way you will see everything... More

Bronx Zoo was much bigger than I expected and has such a wide variety of animals from around the world. I think it is well laid out and makes the animals quite accessible and easy enough to experience, which is educational for the little ones. There are options to walk around or take shuttles to ease the legs, but I... More

Having missed this on our last visit to NYC, disappointing our daughter who is in Med School in the Bronx, we made sure the Bronx Zoo was top priority on this year's visit. We had limited time as I had to go to Manhattan so my husband, daughter and I picked and chose what we wanted to see, carefully planning... More

Second best next to the San Diego Zoo. Great displays and open cages. Took our 3 year old grandson who thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
