And educational experience - something for everyone, young and old - what else can I say, it is a GREAT zoo! Grandson's loved touching the star fish and seeing the tigers, monkeys, etc.

It was drizzling pretty much the whole time we were there. But luckily, the zoo has so many attractions indoors that it wasn't a waste of time or money. We went on a Friday and we found that it wasn't completely packed and had a great time. I love a good zoo and this one doesn't disappoint. The Stingray beach... More

When it comes to human-to-animal interaction, worldly environments, animal habitats, rides and family entertainment, The Omaha Zoo is unmatched and in a class all by itself. There are many popular habitats that other trip advisor guests have written extensively about, such as the big cats and bears. We too thought those displays were brilliantly laid out where you could view... More

I can see why it's a world-class zoo I have heard about my whole life. I have also visited the San Diego zoo (in different years) and it definitely rivals that one.It would take the entire 8-hour day to get even a brief look at all the animals exhibits, without visiting IMAX theater, so it really is a two-day attraction....

I don't think you need to read reviews to know how good this zoo is. It's top rated by tons of travel websites and blogs because of how good it is. Tons of animals, good food and a variety of attractions make this zoo awesome to see again and again. This summer, we went several times and I dont think... More

We took our 3 young daughters here 2 weeks ago as part of our summer vacation. It is a great place. I would advise going early, before the heat of the day, but there are lots of shady places to take breaks. The one thing I didn't think of was, pack a cooler! I saw so many people picnicing, and...

Henry Doorly Zoo is constantly updating and making the zoo better for people to go visit as well as the animals. When you walk into the zoo you immediately see the welcome center where you can rent wheelchairs, power chairs, strollers or wagons. There is an IMAX theater that shows many wonderful movies, there is also the Lied Jungle (you... More

The Henry Dooley Zoo is a great zoo I can see why it is the number one zoo. My husband's favorite was the aquarium. I loved everything.

We have been to many, many zoos across the nation and this is definitely on the top of the list. Even better than the San Diego Zoo.

The Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo is most likely the best in the U.S. Favorite areas include the indoor jungle, the aquarium, the desert dome, the butterfly house, the gorilla house, and Madagascar exhibit. There is so much to see and do that it's almost impossible to do everything in one day. The train and "Skyfari" (ski-lift) are fun too. We... More
