“#1 St Louis Attraction”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

One of the best Zoos in the world! And it is FREE! The whole family loves it! There is a lot to see and you might want to go 2 days. If you don't have 2 days get a map and organize your day so you can see all you want.

“Great Way to Spend a Fall Day”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The scenery was gorgeous - I'll never go to the Zoo during the heat of summer again! It wasn't very crowded & most of the animals were out & about.

“The best.”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Stl Zoo is the best one I have ever been too. Very large and they have transportation to go from one area to another; or you can walk is you like. It is free to get into the Zoo. Some extras cost something, but not much. We loved it. Web always like the Penguins. :-) Go to the Zoo and fall in love like we did.

“A nice free zoo.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Parking is $10 for a car load and admission is free. There is a big variety of exhibits. This has to be one of the best free zoos in the country.
