I think that Artis zoo is great. There are a ton of animals. I loved seeing the giraffes. you could get so close! They come right up to the fence next to you. It is awesome. The zoo is Easy to navigate. Worth the price. Fun for kids and adults.

I have been visiting Artis for many years now and have fallen in love with this little zoo with a huge ambience. No matter if it's raining or in the winter Artis has plenty of indoor buildings to hide away from bad weather, in the summer months I recommend taking a picnic and just enjoy a few hours of peace in this little oasis of animal magic.

A friend who had previously been told us about Artis Zoo. It is really easy to get to by tram & its a wonderful day out for both adults & children. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam.

Loved the whole place, easy to get to from the centre of Amsterdam. Our family of six did it on foot but there are even quicker means. It was a little expensive for all of us but well worth it and a lovely childrens play area and great food

Natura Artis Magistra is the oldest Zoo in the Netherlands and it shows. There are interesting historic buildings springing up from around the park. The animal spaces for the larger animals are to cramped which is unfortunate for the animals involved. Fortunately the planned future expansion of the park should correct some of the issues. You can easily spend a few hours here and the interesting places for me are the planetarium (at the entrance) , the aquarium, the significant historic library and the feeding of the Sea-lions.
