I have visited this zoo for many years and have seen it grow unbelievably in the last 20 years. They are constantly improving and building on the property. The cats and aquarium are my favorites. Then again favorites is hard to say. There is so much to see. For little kids 3-8 years old. Must go to the dig sight... More

Henry Doorly Zoo just keeps getting better and better. The String Ray exhibit this past summer was amazing. Check to see if the exhibit is available in 2016. A great day trip for the grandkids, or stay a few hours. Many people go over and over . Sometimes it is crowded at the front entrance but once you get into... More

I have been going to this zoo since I was a child. I love taking the kids back and share all the memories with my family. Never have enough time to see everything. We love coming back every year. We normally plan a vacation in the off seasons when its not crowded. This is one of the most amazing zoos.

I love the white tigers and the rain forest is amazing. The penguins and aquarium are also very nice. Not only are the exhibits wonderful,... More

There is NO WAY EVER I would recommend this zoo. We have wanted to visit this zoo for years! There are many, many articles saying this zoo is one of the best in the nation - comparable to the San Diego Zoo even. Plus this zoo advertises really cool things like......"world's largest indoor desert under the world's largest glazed geodesic... More

Although I went at a less than opportune time, January ( the coldest month in Omaha), I was really impressed by this zoo. I have been to the Bronx, N. Y. Zoo and the San Diego, Ca. Zoo and this Zoo was certainly equal to them. The exhibits were interesting and varied. The layout and design were very good. I... More
