I am in the bank travel industry. I take senior citizens on bus tours. I took a group to Omaha the week of July 20th for five days. One of our activities was a morning visit at the zoo. Since time is limited on bus tours and wanting to take my group in the morning before the day heated up... More

This is the best Zoo I have ever been too in my 62 years. I was recently there with my grandson. Everyone I have ever taken has loved it.

Our kids (ages 1 thru 14) all loved the zoo. It had really neat exhibits, an iMax theater, and some low-key rides (sky lift, train, etc.). It is pricey to get in. We have 9 in our family so it was more cost effective to buy an annual pass ($109.00) than to pay individually. The great thing about the pass... More

i had not been here for a couple of years. Love all the updates and excited to see the Africa exhibit when it's all done. Some the best sites are indoors so don't be afraid to come on a hot or rainy day.

This was, or WILL BE, a fantastic zoo! While it was very enjoyable in it's current state, the zoo is going through several renovations, upgrades and new additions. When these are complete, it will be hard to find a better zoo anywhere. The Zoo/Aquarium should be on everyone's list when they visit Omaha.

Four of us senior girls decided to visit the zoo on our girls outing to Omaha. We were delighted in the day. The October weather was beautiful and the zoo was not crowded on the week day that we had chosen to visit. We rode a trolley to get to the many places that we wanted to see. We visited... More

Everyday is a good day to go to the Omaha zoo. There are so many exhibits inside that even on a rainy day it's well worth the trip.

This was our second visit to this zoo--last was 13 years ago. We would rank this zoo as one of the top zoos in the US! There were about 3 exhibits that were under construction to open in 2016 that will make it even better. We considered the Lied Jungle exhibit to be best of all, with the Desert Doom... More

It was very hot the day we visited and we were glad to find buildings with a.c. They had 10 gorillas viewable the day we were there. The aquarium is a must. Eats are expensive so if you will be making a day of it, plan ahead and bring your own sandwiches.
