  • 第一次來到Bronx Zoo,很幸運遇到不用收門票的日子⋯⋯動物園實在太大需要花一天的時間才能看完吧⋯⋯雖然只逛了動物園的一部分,但還是很讓人覺得這動物園真的很棒,尤其是有一位幫小孩做face painting 的畫家,在小朋友臉上畫上他們想要變成的動物,畫的唯妙唯俏!讓小朋友興奮的極點⋯⋯但騎駱駝一圈,而且是很快的一圈^ ^一個人就要7美元~覺得就真的還好~~~ 
  • The Bronx zoo is a great place to visit if you want a break from the buildings and people. It's easily accessible by public transport. Though some of the enclosures are old school they do serve a purp...  read more »
  • I went there with my son back in 2015, probably in the spring or summer, not the date listed. I remember that they used to have more things, back in the 1980s (we had a school trip there back when I w...  read more »
  • This is the Bronx zoo it is a beautiful place but it desperately needs funding as a kid my mom would take me to see there lions and tigers and weather permitting bears. As an adult though the experience has been much less than magical many attractions are closed and the park is in dire need of a face lift. If you enjoy nature or animals then this is the place to come everyday not just on Wednesday's. Please come back they miss your patronage or if it's too much a bother to travel then donate on theory website Google it and don't forget to get a Madagascar hissing cockroach for Valentine's Day get someone you love the gift of a giant hissing cockroach.
  • It was a great experience for the entire family. Firstly it is one of the largest zoos I have seen. It takes an entire day to visit this place. It is located in a very well wooded area and makes you feel like you are on a real animal safari. Many of the spaces where the animals are kept are open and not in cages where it is possible. There is a good food court with several options. I will have to make a few more visits to cover the entire place. I will probably visit here many times even after I cover this place.
  • Its the Bronx zoo. Come on, like how can I complain about it. Such a great history, exhibits, education, and entertainment. I could go again and again and not grow tired. There's something therapeutic about a leisurely stroll around this park-like zoo observing animals that seem contented in their habitats. Great open areas for the marvelous beasts. Abundant, helpful, and cheerful staff.
  • Wonderful Zoo! Be sure to get the all in pass so you can ride the tram and see many of the additional fun exhibits. Very shaded so even on a hot day it isn't over welling. Definitely a full day event if not a 2 day event.
  • I brought my son here over 10 times in 4 weeks and it never got old. He loves being ablebto walk around and explore and I love learning new things. It would be hard to see everything in one day, but two or three would be just about right. Children's section of the zoo is wonderful! We spent over 6 hours one day there alone! So much fun! Children's zoo, butterfly garden, bug carosel and 4D theater cost extra unless you have a membership. Membership includes 5 parks; Bronx Zoo, NY Aquarium, Central Park Zoo, Queens Zoo and Central Park Children's Zoo. Wednesdays are free, but packed full of people so it was significantly less fun and much easier to lose sight of your child. All in all, awesome experience!
