We liked this zoo overall, but felt bad for some of the animals (i.e., the big cats) who seemed to be in very small cages. The birds as well were in smaller enclosures and didn't seem to be able to fly very far.

It's quite amazing the quality of this zoo in such a small community. It is worth your while to take a few hours out of your day to see it. Otter and penguin exhibits were my favorite

The afternoon we visited the zoo, it was very quiet, all the children were in school, and it was kinda cool outside. Several animals were no longer out due to the weather change, but the ones that were -- simply beautiful. A quite pleasant, educational zoo to be enjoyed by all ages. Will definitely visit when it's warmer!

Visited the zoo with my son on a Saturday and it was not crowded despite the beautiful weather. Some of the animals were put up due to winter weather expected, but it was 62 degrees yesterday. We saw lions, brown bears, red pandas, Tigers, bison, caribou, wolves, an eagle, giraffes, even a baby giraffe, and several other animals. The children's... More

it really is a fun "zoo" compact and a delight with young children. The little train ride was fun and feeding the giraffe was a highlight

This zoo was completely destroyed in the flood of 2011. I didn't think it would ever be the same but the zoo personnel and city of Minot rebuilt it to where it is better than ever. Absolutely a must see while visiting Minot. Be sure to check out the penguins, absolutely hilarious!

Friday morning we visited the zoo as it was going to be a hot day out so we decided to come in the morning as a lot of the animals would be in the shelter to get out of the heat in the afternoon. We enjoyed the visit as all the animals were out and about. Nice to see giraffes... More

I enjoyed coming here with the family but the issue i had was the fact the animal areas was way too small and felt the animals was bunched up with now room to move.

Love this little zoo! It's very clean and well-kept. There is not a big variety of animals but the ones they do have are awesome. We especially enjoyed watching the Bears. We also got to watch them feed the Penguins. The first time we went this season it was still too cold for the monkeys to be out in their... More
