If you've missed seeing Arctic wildlife on your Alaskan adventure, you'll find it at this small zoo, where all the animals have names. You'll see moose, caribou, sheep, wolves, musk oxen, mountain goats and several different types of bears...more
We needed to kill a few hours in anchorage before our flight, and this zoo fit the bill perfectly. Free shuttle runs at least once an hour from near the cruise hotels (corner F and 4th) during tourist season (to mid Sept - check zoo...More
Although on the small side, this little zoo not only had a good selection of native Alaskan animals, they were mostly animals that couldn’t be released into the wild for one reason or another. It was clean and the animal had space and were well...More
This zoo really needs a bit of love. The setting is lovely but some of the displays are very boring and basic. It is good to go for a visit if you haven’t seen some of the Alaskan animals in the wild yet
We opted to visit the zoo mostly because we had some time to kill and the shuttle was free. Glad we took the time to go since the variety of animals was unique. I would recommend this as an options to anyone traveling with children...More

According to Google maps Sunset Dr. is about 10.5 miles from the Zoo. The Zoo has a free shuttle bus that runs during the summer months from 4th Ave. to the Zoo. 4th Avenue is in the heart of downtown Anchorage and only 1.5 miles from Sunset Dr. If you are not visiting during the summer months a rental car or a taxi are your best options as the Zoo is not near a bus stop / rout. Thank you for your questions and let us know if we can be of further assistance.
