  • This is a nice little zoo. Took my 6&8 year old grandchildren to it. Large enough to entertain them,small enough not to bore them.  more »
  • Cheap for admission and they give you coupons for fun-land. Great for the little kids with plenty of shade and all the animals were well taken care of. Most the animals were active when we went at 10a...  more »
  • Not a "great" zoo, but plenty of nice exhibits. Pretty much entirely shaded, so it was perfect on a summer day.  more »

  • The zoo is really great. Prices are extremely high like some zoos and although the zoo is a little smaller, it allows you to take your time and really see and enjoy all the exhibits. My kids loved the wide variety of animals and it really was a lot of fun. I have been there several times and will probably go again when my little ones are a little older. Highly recommend.
  • Small zoo but awesome! The animals are very close! I like that! Truly enjoyed our day here. Great for kids. Petting zoo was fun. Nice zoo keepers. Cute little lion cub that was abandoned and now is being raised by a care dog. Emu. Wallabies. Monkeys. Birds of all kinds. Otters. Llama. Camel. Bears. Panda. Lion. Snow leopard. Much more... $7.50 for adults Not sure if the kids or group price.
  • Tautphaus Park Zoo is a small zoo, but that makes it the perfect size for younger children. Their exhibits are well kept and the animals are well cared for. They have an excellent inside/outside monkey house, and a fun penguin sanctuary. Their most exotic animals are zebras, lions, a tiger, and snow leopards. They also have a small petting zoo area with farm animals children can interact with. Parts of the zoo get a lot of direct sunlight, so it can get hot, but most of the walking path is shaded all day, keeping you cool.
  • So many babies born this year (2017) which was so exciting. For such a small town zoo they have a wide selection of different types of animals. We went on a 95 degree day and almost the whole zoo was shaded which was very refreshing. Personal note they have my favorite animal and my daughters favorite animal and none of the other zoos in Idaho, Utah, or Montana so it's our favorite.
  • The zoo is always a fun place to go with the kids. They also do a lot of fun events throughout the year. The animal displays are great and there are always babies around from their breeding programs. The zoo is not really big but it's always growing and changing. The kids will love it and the parents too.
