A great day out, we spent a full day here and had a lovely time. A great collection of animals, including an aquarium, bug house and reptile house. Had lunch in the restaurant, which was a bit pricey but that is to be expected in large attractions like this.

This is well maintained zoo, with a good collection. I especially enjoyed the butterfly house, and small mammal house. However, it suffers from the same problem as many city zoos, which is lack of space, and I would be happier to see some of the animals (elephants, wolves, etc) moved to an institution which can provide them with more appropriate enclosures.

Great visit to Artis - really professional and non-commercialised. Animals look really well taken care of and staff really friendly and helpful.
Must check out the Apes and chimpanzees - great visit overall. Money well spent and great value

I was pleasantly surprised by this zoo. A little on the smaller side than I'm use to and the price was about twice as much as ones I've been to in the US. The zoo is obviously older but because of that I think it's why it has so many trees/plants and the walkways are not as wide and open as you'd expect to see in US Zoos and it makes the zoo nicer overall. Some of the animals you can get right up next to, including an indoor exhibit with a room that the monkeys are roaming free.
