The attention to detail makes one feel they are living with the animals. From the jungle to the desert to the aquarium this zoo is first class all the way.

This is a really good zoo. It is beautifully laid out and landscape and the collection of animals is very good. My wife and I did the zoo in the moring before our 2:00 Pm flight. We had a blast

Came here while we were visiting Omaha. It was nice to be able to visit during the winter in the snowy and cold weather. A lot of the exhibits were inside which was great! A lot of things to see! During the warmer months plan to stay here for a whole day!

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is outstanding. Members can come and go as they please, spending a short time at a specific area, or spending a full day and still not see everything. Our favorite place to take out-of-town visitors.

This zoo has it all and it will have more coming this summer. You can look at a few attractions or spend a day, bring a picnic and see the whole zoo. It is fun time for kids and families.

This is one of the top rated zoo's in the country and for good reason. It is a first class facility and very affordable. The exhibits are all housed separately and include an aquarium; a desert; a rain-forest; a gorilla house; giraffe house;and a big cat house. The larger animals are out in open areas for our enjoyment. No bad... More

The zoo is the first thing to see and do in Omaha. There is so much to do and see. They are open in the winter from 10to 4, but you can stay till 6 on the grounds. The best zoo I've ever seen.

We visited the zoo in early February on a snowy afternoon, and actually enjoyed it MORE than summertime when zoos tend to be wall-to-wall people! This zoo has so many awesome indoor exhibits that we were able to spend 3 hours there with only a few minutes spent outdoors. They are currently revamping some outdoor exhibits, so we got to...

The Zoo has a new giraffe house opened this fall . It has a train ride and Skyfari ride that all ages will love. They give an overall view of the zoo from different perspectives. My favorite exhibit is the Aquarium. It's full of sea animals and even has sharks ! There also is an IMAX theater with animal themed... More
