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

I'm from St. Louis where we have an award-winning zoo. So, I write this review with a bias. There is a good selection of animals. Several exhibits were closed in March. The paths are not marked, except for the Polar Bear. The map didn't help...More
Not physically the largest zoo we have seen, but very likely the most amazing collection of animals. All of Alaska’s and Canada’s bears, wolves, and moose, plus tigers and various yaks from Central Asia, and Snow Leopards!! One of the rarest animals on earth, and...More
what the zoo may lack in size it makes up in charm! an easy to stroll zoo open year round offers up close viewing of all the animals. the zoo lights event in the winter months is a great family event. reasonable prices
This is a very nice small zoo. I like that many of the paths are not paved (like say, the San Diego or St. Louis zoos). The paths are natural material and it makes it feel like you're walking through a forest full of beautiful...More
This is a small zoo that is packed full of wonderful exhibits that will take your breath away. The operation is very well managed. If you wish to see and learn about Alaskan animals...this is the place to go!
We visit Anchorage a couple times a year but still love frequenting the zoo with our kids. The zoo is very walk-able and has some great local animals on exhibit. Would definitely recommend when visiting Anchorage with kids.

All of the enclosures are extremely small and the...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.
