We were here in October of 2002, and it's still a fond memory. My children were a lot younger than they are now, but my whole family, and my unmarried sister with no children -- we ALL enjoyed this zoo so very much! One of the highlights for a family to visit, in the Omaha area.

Growing up in Omaha, I sometimes take the Henry Doorly Zoo for granted. However, when I visit other zoos around the country, I am amazed at how wonderful Henry Doorly is. It is the best zoo I have ever been to, and they constantly add new exhibits. The Scott Aquarium and the Lied Jungle are two of the most amazing... More

I am not a big zoo goer, but this one was superb. We especially loved the aquarium, just the right size and the exhibits were great. I like it better than the New England aquarium, which is funny considering that Nebraska is smack in the middle of the country and far from any ocean....We also enjoyed the gorillas, the big... More

The Rain Forest and Ape Complex are amazing exhibits!! They could charge much more to visit this zoo and it would still be worth going. The completion of the Elephant exhibit will make this zoo even better than it already is!

Although the San Diego zoo gets most of the notoriety, the Henry Doorly zoo in Omaha is by far a superior zoo experience. If you're ever in the Omaha area, make this attraction a priority activity. Plan at least a half day, as there is so much to see and experience. You won't be sorry!

A wide variety of constantly-changing exhibits - outdoors, and indoors. There's everything from a rainforest to a desert... inside.

The mission of the Henry Doorly Zoo focuses on best practices for the animals, not for the visitors, so while it is a great experience for you, you don't have to feel like the animals are paying the price. There is an aquarium, an indoor jungle, an indoor desert (biodome) and many, many excellent exhibits. A great experience if you... More

Take your family, and try to see the new stuff they have every time. Very approachable, and not too crazy.
