This zoo is amazing! There is always so many cool things to see My kids LOVE the panda habitat. The aquarium was very nice. It is overall a very well-kept zoo and the staff are always happy to help. It is a must-see for tourists and locals!

Several visits now, can't wait to go back again. Kids love to go. Almost all of the animals seem to interact somehow. Even if its just to move around in their habitat to get comfy, they seem to do it happily and such. Clean, well put together. The one thing I want to see is an updated elephant area.

Best zoo...lots to see and do and there is always something new! Try petting the sting rays or go to the bird show. There are a host of baby animals and great for adults or families!

Loved it!! Very nice zoo. Clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of animals. Only 4 zoos in U.S. that has pandas and this is one of those four. They also have a nice aquarium and several places to eat. You can ride the tram all day pretty cheap. I would go back any day!!!

Took my 6 yr old to the Memphis zoo for the first time. She loved it. Zoo is really clean and there is a lot for kids to do and learn.

Had been nearly 20 years since we were there. Very good zoo with lots of improvements. Plenty of variety in nice settings. It si kid friendly. Not enough parking. Reasonable price. Certainly worth a visit and an above average zoo (we have visited >20 nationally).

Layer out well, great walking paths and wide enough for busy days and crowds. Don't let the restroom at main gate deter you, the rest are well taken care of and clean. Next time I go to a zoo, though, I will bring a cooler for drinks. Bottled water was $2.75-$3 per bottle.

This is one of the top zoos in the country. It is beautiful, clean and has so much to see. We had to drag our children (14,12 and 8) out of there! This is right up there with the San Diego Zoo.

Been to many zoos in several different states. This is by far one the the nicest I have visited. It is clean, well set up and super family friendly.
