I've traveled a lot and seen many zoos, this isn't your typical zoo. The exhibits are amazing!! A humongous indoor rainforest featuring all continents major rain forests, a desert dome??, an aquarium that puts all others to shame. San Diego has nothing on this zoo. Not to miss.

The zoo was a really nice size and a fun way to spend the day. I went with two friends and no kids, and we were there for four hours. The one thing about this zoo is that the food is pretty bad. They have several places to eat around the zoo, but they all serve the same thing (hamburgers,... More

The zoo is amazing place to go. Looking for a family time thats the place to go. The employees are super nice. Today we went a 3 young lady's where out side greeting us. I thought it was ridiculous that they had to hold a question mark sign. But every question we had got answered. The animals are beautiful. The... More

My husband and I were in town for a basketball tournament and decided to come down a day early just to visit this Zoo. He went as a kid and remembered loving it. We are members at the Minnesota Zoo and when we travel we like to take advantage of the reciprocal zoo discounts available. Parts of the zoo are... More

This place is awesome. What more could a person ask for than an aquarium and zoo combined. Will visit this place again.

That's all that needs to be said about the zoo in Omaha Nebraska: "WORLD CLASS". Certainly ranks right up there with San Diego CA and St. Louis MO among others. At my age I sometimes experience some difficulty when walking up and down hills and ramps. During my last visit to Henry Doorly I waited to rent a scooter to... More

This is such a great zoo. its a must visit when in Nebraska. I live in North Carolina and our zoo is pitiful. You actually can not see the whole Henry Doorly zoo. My grand daughter loved it and so did I.

Took a trip to the Omaha Zoo this last weekend and we always enjoy ourselves there. The zoo was packed with visitors and the walk I believe is the hardest of all activities there. We walked all the way to the Rhinos to ask the lady selling tickets for a ride back to front and she said they just closed... More

Don't rush through this zoo! Parking was close by and my wife, 8-year old son and I had a fabulous time - it truly is one of the better zoos in the country.
