Having grown up visiting the "Baltimore Zoo", I was so embarrassed and frustrated with my visit today. I brought out of town company there to visit today. Friday the11th, you posted on your website, that your 3 lion cubs would be out daily 10am-12noon. I cannot tell you how many disappointed families I saw today. After paying, entering, walking all...

I first starting bringing my kids here some 20+ years ago because of this small zoo's unique charm and its focus on kid friendly attractions. At that time, the grand entrance and quad right by the main gate made for a great start to the zoo experience. Multiple animal displays were widely dispersed throughout the zoo, stocked with lots of... More

my wife and I have been to this zoo two times, last april and this april. we were primarily interested in going because they allow guests to feed a giraffe (for $2) between 11 am- 2 pm. Last April we were in the area and came around 1 pm, the giraffe had been fed enough for the day and did... More

The Maryland Zoo has some nice aspects to it, but it isn't nearly as nice as the National Zoo in DC. It is set in the lovely Druid Hill Park, which is really a bit of an oasis from the surrounding area. Coming in from DC, we had to drive through quite possibly some of the sketchiest areas my husband... More

The zoo emoyees were very friendly & walking the park was enjoyable. I really don't understand all the unfinished projects all over. Seems like there is a lot of potential but the facility needs work.

While not one of the most famous zoos in the country, the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, located in Druid Hill Park, is a pleasant zoo to experience. The zoo size is pretty average sized compared to other zoos around the country, however, they have a few unique animal exhibits that are worth the trip here. The polar bear exhibit is... More

This zoo seemed to me to be on the smaller side but it was still a nice zoo to visit. For us it was about a half day visit. We visited during the Fall so the grounds were lovely with Fall foliage. The animals were accessible and easy to view. Worth a visit.

We took our 12 year old grandson to this zoo and we all loved it. Then animals are displayed in large open areas. Attended several demonstrations by zoo workers. All in all a very nice zoo.

Our annual family Christmas day trip this year was to The Maryland Zoo. It's pretty good overall although there were quite a few animals off exhibit due to the winter and construction. Wear your walking shoes as this zoo is quite spread out. There seems to be lots of area to cover with exhibits quite spread out.

This event was held in the mansion porch. The building is nice but the food vs the price of a ticket ($35) is very poor. Indefinitely expected a better layout of food. Eggs, french toast sticks, potatoes & bacon were the only choice. How about bagels, muffins etc... Especially for those that don't eat hot breakfast. Santa came for the... More
