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.
  • One of my favorite zoo experiences! This is a smaller zoo, which makes it great for taking little kids. Seeing everything will take less than 2 hours (we usually spend about 1 hour), which I've found is about the length of a child's attention span at a zoo. I would recommend going as early as possible as it tends to get more crowded mid-morning and later in the day.
  • Always a great family activity for us. The zoo is always clean and well managed. The animals are active and seem very happy. The zoo isn't too big, so it makes a great afternoon outing that won't take up your entire day. Pricing is fair so that you won't break the bank!
  • The zoo is working to help preserve the existence of some endangered species. There is some good information posted. Most of the enclosures seem rather small.
