You need a full day to visit the Memphis Zoo. - to much to see and enjoy in 8 hours. Child and Adult friendly. They even have scooters for those who can't walk it. The food is good! Different foodie stops all around the zoo. It's pricey but worth the visit!

I know this is a bold statement, but Memphis Zoo is the best zoo in the United States simply because of the variety of animals offered, what you get for your money, and the quality of the guest facilities. I have lived in Memphis for ten years, and I have been to this zoo multiple times. The zoo offers rare... More

This is not the best in the country, I have been to better that are more open for the animals. However, it is a good place to take children for an afternoon of fun and learning. I was a bit disappointed in the cat country having seen the one in Columbus, OH, but it was great to see the pandas.

I've been here two times. Liked it both times. I would recommend going during fall because it is a big zoo and very hot too walk around during summertime. The kids loved it!

Awesome zoo, very well kept. The keepers are friendly and informative, the animals are quite active and the experience is one of a kind. The stingray beach is awesome and the pandas are one of only four exhibits in the US and they are super cute! Animal lovers will have a blast.

The Memphis Zoo totally rocks, but last year (5 Stars) it was even better. However, with that said this is due to their current construction of the bird/bee house/butterflies exhibit and a few other parts of the zoo. So for those who are thinking about purchasing the annual pass, you may want to wait until it is completed. Beyond that,... More

Our trip to Memphis was to see the giant pandas at the Memphis Zoo. Not only was the panda viewing worth the trip, the whole zoo was very enjoyable. We spent the whole day there and wandered throughout the zoo visiting everything. Loved the outdoor exhibits! Lots of large exhibits with plenty of natural settings and large spaces for the... More

I had heard that the Memphis zoo was nice, but I had no idea how nice. We spent the day there yesterday, July 30, 2015. Although the temperature was in the 90s, we never felt super hot. The entire zoo has so many places to sit, cool off and get some shade. The misting fans were a nice touch and... More
