Nice place to take your kids to! Great variety of animals!Food within the zoo can be expensive if you have multiple children. Be sure to lock your car when going into the zoo and take down your GPS and lock it away.

I am one big time animal lover, so if there is a zoo in town, I will be there. To me being at a zoo is one of my true happy places. The Memphis Zoo has been around for over 100 years and is home to more than 3500 creatures representing over 500 species. The zoo encompasses over 76 acres... More

Great time at the Memphis Zoo. New exhibits every time I go. At Christmas it was rented for hospital party and we had an absolutely fabulous time. Don't forget your camera because you can get some great picture memories.

Love the Memphis Zoo. It is little expensive but on Tuesday afternoons TN residents get in free. It seems that there are new exhibits every year. During the Christmas season there is an ice skating rink. A day spent at the Memphis Zoo is a day well spent.

I have visited this zoo quite a few times and I have always enjoyed my visit. Tuesday afternoons are free most weeks, too. I especially love the "Cat House" and the Giraffe feedings. All the staff are helpful to answer any questions you have and the volunteers are great! Bring your camera for some awesome pictures. You should plan on... More

My family came to town over Christmas and we had a great time. They are making improvements but it was easy to get around and the exhibits were very nice. All animals seemed to enjoy their habitats and they all looked healthy and well cared for. It's a great way to spend the day -- I recommend going when it's... More
