I have to commend this zoo - they offer so much! They have a new penguin exhibit right in the middle of the zoo - and there's so many way to see them. They offer all sorts of interactive activities (keeper chats, petting smaller animals like goats, feed the giraffes, learning stations, etc) throughout the park. There is a *lot*... More

This is a very nice zoo. Plan on 3 hours to see all the attractions which is very doable. The price was reasonable as the zoo provided a lot to see. Parking was free. Zoo volunteers were very knowledgable. I recommend this for all ages.

This zoo was simply awesome. The Penguin exhibit was the best part of the attractions at the zoo, but it was a great visit overall. I love the open air appeal, and the attractions were sprawled over a vast area. It is a bit hilly but overall a must see if you are in the area.

This was our second time to The Maryland Zoo (my boyfriend and I). He's not really a huge fan of anything outdoorsy come mid August but I drug him along last Sunday despite his complaints. We were here last year, and the zoo has done a lot in a year. The new penguin exhibit is quite impressive, along with several... More

a great time at the zoo...however be prepared for a lot of going up and down. the walking area at this zoo is less flat surface and more going uphill and ramps especially compared to central park and Lincoln zoos. trust me, your legs will feel it the next day. otherwise a pretty fun zoo.

I was so very impressed with the grounds, the exhibits and the overall condition of the animals. Loved the new penquin exhibit, the polar bear watch and the chimpanzee forest. The gift shop was short on Tshirts in bigger sizes, but overall it was worth the visit.

This zoo is great! I've lived in Maryland my entire life (47 years) and I've never been until last week. I'm not sure why - I guess whenever we wanted to go to the zoo we just automatically thought of the National Zoo in DC. The Maryland Zoo is a lot smaller, but that was actually nice. We were able...

We visited the Zoo in August 2015. The zoo was very reasonably priced, clean and well laid out. Lots of exhibits for us to look at and a large variety of animals. The zoo is beautiful and has lots of greenery and shaded areas within it. Lots of options to eat whilst there and refills at just $1.00 each which... More

I have been to many large zoo's across the country and this zoo is my favorite! It is a 4 hour trip from my home, but I try to visit at least once a year or more. I could stand and watch the prairie dogs for hours. Also love the outdoor chimp area, the petting zoo and so much more.... More
