Really good zoo.

Good zoo with a great assortment of animals. Lots of walking, but it is better than renting a cart. The carts are way more effort than just walking. Overall fun experience.

Florida is known for it's wildlife and flora and the zoo has both. Well maintained and a lot to see. The kids love it as well as the grown up.

I like this zoo but I'm from DC where the National zoo is free so imagine my surprise to have to pay $15 per person to enter the Miami zoo. The animals have a fair amount of space but I'm no longer a big fan of zoos as I've come to consider how unhappy those seemingly lazy animals must be... More

Here w the little brat lol. I let her play hooky from daycare and she chose to go to the "zoom" as she calls it. I like that they have changed up a lot and added a water ground and playground for the kiddos. I also said if we decide to take a family trip that I would be interested... More

Miami is lucky to have this zoo - all the animals you would expect are here, and it is pretty well laid out. You can feed the giraffes, so look into this before visiting. Also bring an umbrella if there is any chance of rain, since there aren't a lot of covered areas.

Florida summers are HOT! Consider this when visiting Zoo Miami. Parking is free! The Zoo was constructing a new entrance when I was there in late June. Reciprocal membership discount with Philly Zoo was nice! The enclosures/exhibits are spacious and well kept. The animals looked healthy, with the exception of a VERY skinny gerenuk! There was a definite lack of... More

This is a beautiful zoo. So much to do here. Make sure you devote a whole day to this activity because this place is huge! So many different animals and beautiful gardens. I loved looking at the plants as much as the animals! The animals all seemed happy and well taken care of. The exhibits were very nice and well... More
