We have a membership, very reasonably priced, and just went for the grand opening of the new rhino exhibit. It's near the giraffe exhibit!! We love all the outdoor animals. Going inside the buildings is not my favourite, because they usually smell. There is also a chain of 4 buildings. If you see one, you have to see them all,... More

I went with my son's school to zoo for end of year field trip. 35 school buses and several day cares were at the zoo the same day. Everything was spaced out so well we did not notice the crowds. If you pull up to the zoo and see dozens of school buses enjoy the day! Most of the buses... More

I'm thankful that Tulsa has a zoo. However, it's nothing too special. Young kids will love it. A little boring for teens/young adults. Fortunately, everything is close together so the walking isn't too terrible. It's nice for its small size, but this is Tulsa Oklahoma so the standards aren't set too high. Relatively inexpensive. It's a nice place to go... More

Not a zoo for true animal lovers. I know that some of the animals are there because they could not live on their own in natural habitats, but the cages, pens, and habitats at this zoo are pretty small and confining. Some newer areas are bigger, but they really need to update the rest of the zoo badly.

This zoo may be small but it is one of the best we've seen. The habitats are spacious and well-maintained. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Most notable: Tulsa has the BEST signage of any zoo we've been to so far. The information is educational and fun. As many zoos as we've been to, we learned more about some of... More
