In a city as sophisticated as New York I would expect a zoo that is one of the best in the World. Unfortunately the Bronx Zoo looks like it hasn't been updated in over 50 years. There are so many new technologies that could be incorporated into the zoo experience. With that said our grandchildren enjoyed seeing the wide variety... More

My family and I had such a great time at this zoo. The animals are treated very well and their habitats are large and well kept. Lots of learning opportunities for not only my daughter but for me as well. If I'm ever in the area again, I will be visiting again.

Be sure to plan a full day before you visit because there are more than 600 species (4000 animals) to see. It took my daughter and I two trips to see all the exhibits. There are enclosed exhibits for special species and large open space for big animals. 4:30pm is the closing time. Normally big animals go inside around 4pm.... More

We're members (worth it if you go twice a year) and love supporting this gem ! Wonderful exhibits and great fun for all ages. Food mediocre and expensive ... but you go for the animals... great all year round!!!

My family and I went on the morning of Dec 31st, the temp was down to the low 30s and a little too cold for my wife and I but the kids did not mind at all. A good number of the exhibits were closed because of the weather but the Lions, brown bears, rhinos and sea lions were out... More

I have been to this zoo dozens of time, and I am always impressed. I am an animal activist, therefore I have mixed emotions about zoos. The Bronx Zoo takes good care of the animals. Their habitats are amazing. I would highly recommend it.

Love the bronx zoo located by the southern blvd, you can get there easily by bus or the 2, and the 5 trains from the down-town New York.

I went on Wednesday and surprise the admission is free, just have to donate some bucks to the cause. There is a complimentary fee for the 4D theatre, Jungle, and 2 attractions more, but we did not pay it. I was with 2 children and my aunt. Despite it was a very windy and cold day we like it! Yes!...
