We went this past Tuesday. the weather was beautiful. The park was clean and we had a wonderful time. You had better go now before we get those hot Memphis days. We saw the Birds in flight program, really nice. In all it was a delightful experience.

The Memphis zoo is a delightful respite from the ordinary in sightseeing in Memphis. A well organized and thoughtfully laid out park that will provide hours of entertainment and information for all ages. The specialty exhibits rival any from larger cities. A must visit on your trip to Memphis.

Loved the updated exhibits and the emphasis on conservation and all things green and animal friendly. The panda exhibit is phenomenal but really enjoyed the Northwest Passage with the polar bears, sea lions and Eagles! Teton Trek was really neat with the lodge. Food was a little expensive, but good overall experience!

I love this zoo. It was our second time to visit and enjoyed it just as much as the first. The pandas are always great and the Grand Teton exhibit is exceptional. My only regret is we didn't allow ourselves enough time. We really needed the whole day but had to drive 5 hours home so we cut it short.... More

Was a bit pricy on the admission but turned out to be an enjoyable day. They are updating the displays and exhibits. Visit the pandas and penguin area

We traveled to Memphis just to visit the Memphis Zoo with our kids. It is the closest zoo to us that has pandas. Most of the exhibits were great! The "aquarium" is really run down and gross. Be prepared to pay extra... stingray pool, feeding giraffes, and camel rides are all about $5 per person but they look worth it.... More

We had such a good time! The Chinese pavilion is outstanding. The map is useful. The animal exhibits are well laid out. It's clean and friendly. The Red Panda hid but everyone else was out and visible. Look forward to going back.

Let me start by saying I don't really like going to zoos. They feel hot, crowded, and buggy to me. So, imagine my amazement when the Memphis zoo was none of those things! Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of people there, but it didn't feel crowded. I believe the reason why is because they have very, very wide... More
