In June 2015, we did the Bx Zoo Experience, It costed much but we have a good time. I believe Wednesday was the free day. I wanted the children to enjoy the experiences not just the site of the zoo. There was my 16 yrs old niece from NC and my two grand daughters (13 & 3 yrs old from... More

if you are a frequent visitor to NYC area with kids or have an extra day to spend you must go to the zoo. Open daily from 10AM - 5:30PM, try to be there at 10 as you will need the whole day. we bought the tickets online (cheaper than the gate) using AAA discount (try to look for parking... More

Great zoo to visit in the fall as it is not as crowded as in the summer. One could spend the whole day here as there are so many animals to see.

I love this Zoo...You will easily spend a full day here. A bit expensive, but worth the money, if you like Zoos. It is huge, with lots and lots of different things to see. It is simply amazing! Especially considering the fact that you are in the middle of Bronx. You totally forget that while touring around the zoo. Make... More

Spent an entire day walking around this gigantic piece of land right int he heart of Bronx. Amazingly enough you will forget you are in the middle of New York, unless you go on the Monorail and for a few seconds you get to hear the cars on the highway, otherwise, this is a whole other world. There is plenty... More

Bronx zoo is definitely a great day out. The place is massive so wear your walking shoes. We couldn't cover all of the grounds which I guess is a good thing! Place is clean and well operated. If you're tired of walking, shuttles are readily available. Staff is polite, mostly. Eateries and bathrooms are available throughout. They are environmentally conscious.... More

We went just this Saturday for a day trip from Massachusetts and it was so worth it!! We have a 2.5 year old and a 1.5 year old that had a blast. I will say that we arrived at 10:45am and at 5:30 pm we were exhausted and didn't see or do as much as we wanted so I would... More

This zoo is a must if you are in New York for long enough. We were staying at Long Island and took the tube for a few dollars all the way to the Bronx. The journey took about an hour and a quarter and the nearer we got to the Bronx the less tourists there were. When we got off... More
