There isn't a better zoo in the country. So many exhibits housing rare and exotic animals. You won't regret the modest admission cost.

No matter the age of the visitors, this is a wonderful experience. Year-round destination because multiple settings are indoors and are climate controlled. A person could send days attempting to try to see everything.

Henry Doorly is simply one of the best zoos anywhere. Outstanding collection of animals and viewing distances/angles that actually allow you to get a good look at them. If you find yourself in Omaha, especially with kids, Henry Doorly Zoo is THE can't miss attraction in town.

What a fabulous zoo with so many first rate exhibits! I'm a huge zoo fan and have visited many in different cities across the country over the years. As a member of the San Diego Zoo, I know one of the very best too and have thus been spoiled by its high standards. We always make time to visit Omaha's zoo on our annual visit with family. The extensive and natural Lied Jungle is THE best exhibit I have ever seen at ANY zoo any where! You actually feel you are in a rainforest! Another family favorite is the aquarium. Their overhead tunnel contains many different and interesting species and is longer than ours at Sea World (and we LOVE Sea World!). More favorites include Kingdoms of the Night where you feel like you're in the Louisiana bayous, Expedition Madagascar, Gorilla Valley and the butterfly exhibit. This zoo is the best!
