What a great place to spend a few hours. Loved this place. They have a cafeteria like restaurant that has a wall of windows that view the polar bear habitat. So you can watch them romping in the snow.

We had so much fun seeing all the animals and took so many pictures. I highly suggest especially if you love animals and have small children.

This is a great place for family activities. The Journey to Churchill is the star of the show. You’ll love the seals and if you’re lucky catching the polar bears swimming in the tunnels. Highly recommend this zoo.

Even on a cold day I enjoyed wandering around this zoo. The Polar Bears were very active. Their enclosure in the Churchill section of the zoo was large enough to house six gorgeous bears. They were enjoying themselves. What was really cool is there is...More

The zoo was a pleasant surprise. I had not gone for several years because of massive construction and not seeing many animals when you went. They have definitely done a massive upgrade, which is reflected in the price now, but not out of line with...More

The "Journey to Churchill" is primarily outdoors. The only indoor aspect (to the best of my knowledge) is when you go underground to watch the animals swimming. I have been vistiting the zoo for over 50 years and have... More

We spent about 4 hours at the Zoo, but we lingered at a few exhibits. You can certainly cover it in 3, but we took our time. If you have a little extra time, you can continue over to the English Gardens in the park. The... More
