“Awesome zoo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Loved that the ticket price included the aquarium, reptile house, bird house & planetarium too. The sea lion show is really good, the penguin feeding not so good and both are in Dutch which is expected really! Took us around about 3 hours to get round everything, definitely worth a visit!

“Lovely way to spend a day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Very well laid out zoo with so many interesting animals. I particularly like the way there is a butterfly pavillion and aquarium included. Definately worth the €20 entry fee. Being a big cat lover though, the only visible cats were the lions, although it was a cold day so perhaps the tigers etc were kept in. I loved that you could watch the sea lions underwater...

“Fantastic Day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Some of the cages are small, but they are increasing the cage sizes. The best part of this zoo is the wide range of animals they have and the close proximity. It is a really enjoyable day out also has an aquarium.

“Great zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Visited while staying in amsterdam with my boyfriend. Approx 20 euro entrance fee. Huge range of animals and also a planetarium, zoological museum and aquarium (which the entrance fee covers). We left it a bit late in the day to go and only had 2 hours to get around everything before the zoo closed which really wasn't enough - I would recommend at least 3.5 hours to allow time to get around everything without rushing. We didn't have time for the museum or planetarium. I would go again if I was in amsterdam.
