The penguins are the best part of this zoo by far! They seem so active and happy its fun to watch them slide around and hop into the pool!

The zoo has been under renovation a bit, mostly to accommodate the influx of higher income, I'm sure. It's being done beautifully. Lots of neat animals! They have amazing programs offered for the kids, the ZooBoo was NEAT and the Christmas at the Zoo was also pretty unique. Love this zoo.

We've have always enjoyed the Minot Zoo. We've been going there for almost 30 yrs. It's a nice clean well maintained zoo. It makes for a nice pleasant day.

We had the whole zoo to ourselves, practically. The lions sang. The primates were very active. We got to feed goats and sheep. We would have loved to see kids there, as I think they would have a great time.

The Minot Zoo is an average small zoo. The admission price is way too expensive for what you get. The zoo has a variety of animals of about the same in a zoo this size. There is really no guide way to find your way around the zoo. Employees did not seem very friendly. They were not too helpful. Construction... More

They have many animals, but as it being under construction it isn't the same. I can't wait for the penguins to come back! I am looking forward to it.

This zoo has a nice collection of animals from around the world. The setting is pleasant, many trees spacious and very clean. Considering the cost of caring for animal especially exotic ones the price is very low. Great place for families.. It is adjacent to o a park with picnic tables and lots of trees. Beautiful. Take time to feed... More

Good zoo, animals looked healthy and well cared for. Not all animals were available as it was raining, but the zoo can't control the weather. If you go, do so while it's sunny.

I thought this zoo was going to be a waste of time because it was so small. I have been to larger zoos my entire life and this measures right up there with the best. Selection of animals was very impressive, the price is fair and the staff was amazingly friendly. Can't wait to go back!
