The Birmingham Zoo is the perfect place for a family outing! Even my older stepchildren enjoy going when they get the chance. There are always events going on, you can even plan a birthday party there! More so, they have a huge selection of animals and wildlife. It is defiantly a full day of entertainment and I recommend it to everyone!

It is a fine Zoo. Just as good as many Zoo's in the US. It was definitely worth the $5 promo through the month of August!

My wife and I finally took a trip to the Birmingham Zoo. I hadn't been since I was a kid, and it was her first time. We both had a great time. There was a Dino exhibit as well as a train ride through the park. The only thing was the prices, I felt they were a little steep, and the line for the train was too long. Other than that, a great weekend date for my wife and I.

A little costly to take a family of 5 or more, especially if you plan to eat there. Then they charge you extra to do all the cool stuff, feed giraffes and take a train.
However, there is a water fountain for kids next to the food court, so take swimmies along

Been to the Atlanta zoo and the Knoxville zoo and this one is far superior. We were able to get close to the animals and really see them compared to other zoos. The zoo was not overly crowded even on a weekend. The only down side is the food.
