Bigger than you'd think. Well kept, and with helpful staff. Especially good for kids. Watch out for the wandering peacocks. The food's not that great though.

Nice place to wander around when you have got some spare time. Some nice aspects are: the vlindertuin, the birdhouse, the elephants and last but not least the aquarium

If you are looking for a little off the beaten path something to do, then I would highly recommend the Artis Zoo. We spent almost a whole day.Next time I am in Amsterdam I will go back.

The zoo is working on the welfare of the animals: the jaguars are getting a bigger house, which is being build at the moment. Some animals don't need as much space but other do. The wolves would be much happier if they had a lot more space. The bear (who was only temporarily here) looked confused and kept walking around his water pool. Visiting zoos is a way to learn about animals and to pass knowledge on to other generations.

We visited Artis Zoo this weekend (17th feb) and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of animals that were kept here. I loved the whole experience and my favourite being the aquarium ... However I felt the animals such as the lions, leopard and wolves didn't have as much space as they could have.
