One of my favorite things to do in Memphis. We could spend the day watching the gorillas and the other primates. The zoo is really well done with different areas of animals that include several different varieties in each area.

My family and I have made a point out of exploring local zoos when we travel. Recently we were in Memphis and made a point of visiting their zoo. Quite simply it was incredible. The architechture was phenominal. The botanical plantings were amazing. And the animal displays were varied and amazingly well done. The animals had plenty of room to... More

Great zoo, not so large that you are worn out at the end of it. Also under a lot of shade so you aren't in the full sun. Great selection of varied well presented exhibits that all looked well cared for. Good price as well for the size of the exhibit, especially as I have now seen a coupon as... More

This was our first trip to the Memphis Zoo, and I was indeed impressed. So far this is the best zoo I've ever been to. Last month we went to the St Louis Zoo, and thought that was the best, but sorry St Lou Zoo, Memphis has you beat in my book! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and well maintained,... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Memphis! My son enjoyed feeding the birds (cost $1) and the giraffes ($5). We made many memories and enjoyed our time there.

The Memphis Zoo is one of the best zoos in the U.S. Lots of themed exhibits, and fun for the whole family. Don't just come for the Pandas, but this is one unique thing about the Memphis Zoo. Most Zoos don't have that opportunity. While you're in the area, go to Central BBQ....great Memphis BBQ and wings. I live in... More

I have visited the Memphis Zoo three times now. Two of those times were for a normal visit and the third was for a road race. The Memphis Zoo is always a good time for my husband and me. I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because they charge for certain things that I think should be included... More

This zoo is a must. It is huge so plan enough time. I really loved seeing the pandas! Definitely download the app. It's a map and everything you need.

Nice animal exhibits, flat walking paths, clean zoo grounds, water feature for the kids at the Teton Lodge. No reciprocity for my Chyenne mtn zoo membership.

This is a very nice zoo with lots to see. We took a roll on cooler with us that was very handy. I recommend going but definitely wear comfortable shoes and cool clothes in the summer.
