It wouldn't be hard to be at this zoo from open to close. There are several exhibits to see, all of which were informative about the animals. We only purchased the general admission tickets, which got us into the zoo & aquarium. The other attractions offered would be fun to do in the future. I just moved here & plan... More

This was a great zoo I definitely wouldn't rate it number one in the world but I did enjoy it. I love polar bears and so that was exciting the penguins looked kinda rough but there was a big selection of cats and they were very healthy looking I was very disappointed in the giraffes as the ones in Colorado...

Be ready to spend most of your day here, I did. Literally so much to see and do you don't know where to start. Suggest starting off at the Desert Dome as it probably catches your eye right away and has you wondering what lurks inside. The aquarium and sea life exhibit was awesome expecially the jellyfish and the salt... More

If you are in Omaha - - you've got to visit the Henry Doorly Zoo. This is for kids and adults alike - - just an awesome place. You need a full day - maybe more. You will not regret taking the time and you will be amazed at the many things you can see.

We all enjoyed every minute! The desert dome blew us away! My husband and sons loved touching the sting ray! We all enjoyed the I max show! It's a great place to bring the whole family!

Great place for all to see! Cat house is my favorite along with Primates and Aviary displays. Was perfect stop when College World Series was nearby, but still a must see in Omaha.

Ever since I was a child, I've been spoiled by this zoo. It's two story jungle (with a restaurant), large aquarium with sharks and jelly fish and it's desert dome are both immersive and educational. There is no right or wrong places to start. It's so big you can spend a good two days here, seeing it all and reading... More

One of the largest zoo, this has a very good collection of a variety of animals including birds, mammals and aquatic life. For the first time I was able to see a polar bear, thanks to the Henry Doorly Zoo. The zoo is spread out on a very huge space, difficult to cover in a single day. The aquatic section... More

Visiting Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo should be on everyone's bucket list. It's absolutely amazing and always getting better! The folks that work there are wonderful and you can really tell everyone cares deeply for the animals. Going to the zoo is educational, technology free, fun adventure. I just can't say enough good things!
