I brought my daughter here early January and we were not disappointed! Located near downtown Albuquerque the zoo was easy to find and easy parking. Admission was only $16.50 for BOTH of us ( 1 adult, 1 child)! My daughter had never seen polar bears or koalas in person, and this zoo has both. I loved the tropucal climate exhibit as well. Really great zoo, only downside was skeleton staff due to winter off-season, but we would visit again for sure. And don't miss the train ride!
