Everyone has heard of the Bronx Zoo and it seemed like it was a must do. While it is a very long-standing zoo, I am not sure that there is anything truly special about it. That is not to say that I didn't enjoy myself and that the animals were not wonderful and very full of life. I enjoyed the time I spent there and the fact that I was able to cut through to the Botanical Gardens and then back through to the subway. Might be a bit more fun in warmer weather is my only suggestion

I live in eastern Long Island and went to this zoo 6 times this year with family and friends. Buy the family membership that includes 2 adults, 6 kids, free parking, and food discount. Also includes free admission to other zoos, and the ny aquarium. It is worth every penny. There is always events and members get special previews and other perks. I love zoos and this zoo is tops on my list. The facility is clean and well maintained. The animals seem happy and their environments are equal or better than their natural environment. The dinosaur safari was ok. Worth doing once.
Overall I highly recommend this zoo and all the other zoos included with the membership. Young and old will find it worth the trip.

We went to the Bronx Zoo during the winter season and could only imagine what this zoo would be like during the summer.

Educational, animals did not look out of place. Hard to believe that there is such an incredible place in the middle of the Bronx! You certainly have a treasure here NY.

Worth every moment.

Visited on a warm November day, it was quiet but that added to the enjoyment. Food and drinks were reasonably priced and staff friendly. Only improvement world to improve signage from local metro station.

Great day out. Managed to see the tigers at feeding time. Lots of shows which the kids loved. There were smiles on their faces all the time. For a city zoo enclosures are bigger than normal. Different amazing cobras. Comodo dragon enclosure ready but waiting for the dragon. If you have time in NYC and you've got kids, Bronx Zoo is a must
