We have been there several times alone and with friends and family. We have become members so that we save on some of the admission. The overall layout of the zoo is great and easy to get around. The animal "exhibits" look well executed and...More

It's a very nice to visit with kids. But it's dirty and the sinalization of the places is not good. We went there during the rabies alert, and I think they aren't able to deal with the problem.

When something says it's "Open every day of the year", you generally think it means more than just the gates being open. Many 'attractions' had nothing in them, most concessions weren't opem and even the water fountains didn't have water. With the exception of the...More

This zoo is HUGE! It is a 3 mile stretch of nature and wildlife. I highly recommend renting a bike. It helps you get through the zoo quicker and its fun to see the animals while biking through the zoo. The newer Florida exhibit is...More

Miami Zoo is well worth a visit, especially with kids! Be sure to rent the bike for 4 people to avoid long, hot walks! They have added a new section where you can have the kids walk through plastic tubes under the water and see...More

Had a great day at the zoo. Love the fact that when the twins got hot I was able to cool them off in their water sprinkler park for kids. That was the best !!!

This was by far one of the best zoos I've been to. We visited on New Year's Eve and practically had the park to ourselves. It was excellent! The animals were active and we had no trouble seeing any of the exhibits. By far one...More

Wonderful zoo; very thoughtfully planned. The animals are in ‘natural’ habitats-no cages here! Many rest areas with washrooms, drinking fountains, cafes, play areas for children, drink/ice cream machines. There are four wheel group bicycles-great for families with young children or anyone with mobility challenges. Staff...More

The zoo is out west. Not much there. I’d suggest you stay on beach and skip the zoo. You have Jungle Island right next to the beach and it might be better than the zoo. Have fun and stay near the beach. If you want something... More
