We were in Manhattan for a surgery at Kansas State University Veterinary Hospital. Took extra time to tour the city. Found the zoo, but in the middle of November, even with the 70 degree weather it was hard finding animals to watch. Might they have...More

When we come "home" for a visit this is a must do on our list. It has changed quite a bit over the past 50 years but their care and dedication to the animals really shows!

We had friends with small children visit us for Thanksgiving. Our outing to the zoo was very enjoyable. There was a wide variety of interesting animals to see in pleasing habitats.

This is a real fun small zoo. Definitely worth the price. My 5yr old loved all the peacocks that are running around free.

It is a small, but nicely done zoo. The animals all seem well cared for, and it probably doesn’t hurt that the K-State College of Veterinary Medicine is just down the road. Admission is currently $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children between the ages...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Halloween outing at Sunset Zoo. What a gift to the Manhattan community this zoo is. We were visiting our military kids from Kentucky, but highly recommend this as one of your stops when you're in the area.

This is a great small zoo that has varied terrain and shady areas if sun and heat are a concern. It has a good selection of animals and is not too big for families with small children for an outing. Several of the exhibits have...More
