My fiancée and I love zoos and we use to visit zoos in the different cities we visit. We went at Philadelphia zoo on January 2013, just for a couple of hours before closing and it was so great. As it was winter, some animals were impossible to see but those we saw were amazing. A large variety of animals, really well exposed ! The Big Cats Exhibit is outstanding !!!!
I don't understand why many people say it is a big zoo and that we need good shoes to visit it because it is tiring. We found it quite "small" or with a good size for a center city zoo. The Bronx Zoo is so much larger and in France, we have really bigger zoos. So don't worry it is not too big.
Concerning the price we found it very affordable ($14), and it is included in the Philadelphia City Pass. For example the Bronx Zoo is $20 and you have to pay extra fees to see gorillas ($5), butterflies ($5), black panther ($5). Or you can take the full experience pass which is $27. On the contrary in Philadelphia, for $14 you can see all the animals of the zoo.
We recommend it without hesitation !
