  • This is a sweet little zoo. The animals seem well cared for. The new parking lot is great! They really need good signs posted everywhere though. Too easy to get LOST, and the paths are NOT well design...  more »
  • To be honest this isn't the greatest zoo in the world. That being said our family does have a membership and we do go at least once a month. The kids love to ride on the train and there is lots of roo...  more »
  • We were pleasantly suprised by this zoo. It is not overly big, but there is much to see and do. We watched the animal show which featured a skunk and when it was over my kids got to pet it and yheybre...  more »

  • The Lincoln Zoo is great. I hadn't been for awhile so I took my 5 year old. We had a great time. The staff everywhere we went was amazing and super friendly!! My ONLY reason for 4 not 5 stars is because I felt some of the animals had such small living spaces. The life of a zoo I suppose and I know Lincoln takes excellent care of their animals.
  • This is a nice zoo with a good number of animals and lots of shady areas to eat, rest and play. There are lots of fun things for kids like a giant sandbox, a log obstacle course, pony rides and a train to ride. The staff are really nice and we've seen lots of young volunteers helping throughout the zoo. This summer the zoo is also open from 5-8pm on Wednesday.
  • Great zoo and great price. Great place to go if your trying to kill some time. Went on a Sunday morning in July and though it was hot, there isn't too many people or crowds. Good selection of exotic animals to see and some to interact with. Only $10 adult admission.
  • Please people , not to expensive. Perfect for little kids. Shaded. The train was odd. It went around the outside of the zoo. But it was a great day. Thanks
  • This small zoo focuses on family friendly exhibits and walkability. There are student volunteers scattered throughout the facility, willing to answer questions and let kids touch some animals. Features: penguin pool, butterfly house, insect/reptile house, aviary, camel paddock, horseback rides (for kids) goat feeding. Major animals: snow leopard, red panda, gibbon, bald eagles, lemurs, tortoises, and much more. The zoo features none of the big African safari animals or other typical big-draws, though an advertised expansion due to be done in 2019 will have giraffes, a tiger, and more monkeys.
