Unfortunately it is a very small zoo. It doesn't take long to walk thru and see everything. What animals are there are pretty interesting. Definitely worth going at least once.

They had a wider variety of animals like lions and tigers, no bears (oh my!). The newest edition is a shy jaguar, They have an area that is closed off and you can go in where there are birds flying around free. The train is cute and a nice added touch. Due to the proximity to the river and water,... More

My husband is working in Victoria right now. I brought our 8 y/o grandson down to hang out with us and see some sights. We decided to go to the Texas Zoo yesterday. Perfect size. We had a great time. They are doing some remodeling for the lion exhibit. We saw a show. He was able to pet a king... More

Great place for kids. Not a ton of animals but a very very nice selection. Leopards to snakes and owls to alligators. Fun for all ages.

Ok, I wanted to like this zoo from the impressive reviews but uh, no. It's not bad at all, just very small and the animals are basic.. pretty much ones you can find in the prairies and nothing spectacular. Red wolf, grey fox, hawk, owls, boars, etc. The tiger's area was nicely layed out and the lions had a neat... More

We really liked this zoo. It is very small, but that makes it much easier to get around that the huge zoo in nearby San Antonio. You wont find Elephants or other large animals, but they have some very frisky lions and tigers. The day we were there an Australian outback show with kangaroos. The grounds are old school with...

We took our four year old granddaughter to the Texas Zoo in Victoria, Texas on March 23, 2015. It was an excellent experience for her. The zoo is just the right size for little ones and their parents. The price is moderate, allowing families to enjoy the day together. Food sales are available on weekends.

It was very busy when we visited. There were a lot of school children on trips. The zoo is very big ,so once through the gates, the crowds thinned out. The cages were large and all the animals seemed well looked after. We saw a lot of unusual animals compared to the zoo's in England. I enjoyed watching the young... More

It is a very cozy place with a lot of new exhibits opening soon. And the price is very reasonable for families.

From the outside, you'll see that the zoo is tiny, but you'd never know it from the inside. It's laid out very well, and feels way bigger than it is. Lots of monkeys, and daily shows where they bring animals out to interact with guests. Not very expensive, and a good way to pass a couple hours.
