My husband and I took our four year old son and 11 month old daughter to this zoo for the first time, and we had such a good time! Although a few animals were temporarily off exhibit, most of them were on exhibit, including the polar bear, rhino, giraffes, camels, and so many more I can't list them. WalKing around... More

I was shocked in a good way visiting this zoo. Many different animals, we arrived at 1pm and it closed at 4pm but we got to see a lot and very well educated zoo staff. My major dislike of zoos is animals just sitting in dirt well here it wasn't like that. Ok I wish the animals had bigger areas... More

Fantastic zoo with content, well-cared for animals. A wide variety of animals for a zoo this size. It's not huge and overwhelming like the national zoo, but still has a wide variety of animals from Africa, the arctic, and Maryland natives. Also has free parking. Great for families and adults.

Looking for a rendezvous location for an outing with multiage kids midway between Washington and Philadelphia, our family enjoyed a delightful day at the Maryland Zoo. Set in a gently rolling area, this zoo reminded me of one you might find in Europe with gracious landscaping and natural settings for a wide array of animals. It was very clean and... More

Never heard of the Maryland Zoo until we arrived in Baltimore. The clerk at the Hotel we stayed at made mention that Baltimore had a zoo when I inquired about the National Zoo. It was close by the inner harbor - a quick drive - and man am I glad we did. Admission was reasonable and we saw a ton... More

We are members of the National Zoo, we go all the time. You know how sometimes you go to the zoo and you feel like you really didn't see that many animals. We saw so much at this zoo. And it felt really personal. We felt like we were close to the animals without being too disruptive to them, a... More

We took our grandson here last Sunday for his birthday gift. We had a great time spending the day with him, but the zoo was just Ok. It was his first visit to a zoo he thought it was wonderful. If you have been to Philadelphia or the National Zoo in D.C. you may be a little disappointed. There isn't... More

First time to the Baltimore Zoo. Spent 4 hours of leisurely walking with kids. It's not a very big zoo so walking is not bad at all. Lots and lots of shade everywhere. Unlike the National Zoo, where it's overcrowded and virtually no shade making it super hot. Penguin exhibit is under construction and will be done later this year.... More

We took our 11-year-old son to the Breakfast in Chimp Forest, which was a lot of fun. Our son had a blast and loved watching the chimps. They were able to make treats for the chimps, which were fed to them during a demonstration. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed this zoo. The lion cubs were out and... More
