  • Not to be missed! The Tulsa Zoo can be visited multiple times and you will enjoy each time! There is a lot of walking, so be prepared. However, there is also a miniature train that goes around the per...  more »
  • The zoo hasn't changed a whole lot since I was a child. It's decent. If you're lucky the animals are out where you can see them. Sometimes they aren't. It has a lot of info so it's educational. Overpr...  more »
  • This place is so busy, but it's worth it. The exhibits are well maintained. Wanted to ride the train, but had to leave before we had time for that. Must go to the zoo!!

  • My son had a blast with his uncle and cousins. The place was well laid out and had quite a few animals that we hadn't seen at other zoos we'd been to. There are already plans to go back.
  • This zoo is pathetic please don't waste your money here on this dump! Go to the okc zoo it's SO much better. When we went to Tulsa zoo there were NO animals and the habitats were pathetic, Small dirty etc. animals look so malnourished and sickly from the ones that were there anyway. I'm telling you don't waste your time. The other reviews are ignorant or easily satisfied with looking at cages with nothing in them. From the sound of these reviews they obviously work there or.... Are stupid.... Place was trashed not clean at all and super hot even inside the buildings staff was incredibly rude. Having spent $60 on this "zoo" to enter and there was nothing here. We see. A fox and some type of cat that looked like a house cat in its own exhibit. I guess you can go yourself and see what I mean. Good luck and we will not be back.
  • Our 7 month old son loves being outdoors and the Tulsa Zoo was the perfect solution. The 1 year zoo membership is a great bargain for any moms wanting to take their kids out of the house. Especially as our son gets older his eye sight keeps getting better so everytime we go he notices something he didn't see from the times before.
  • I like that a lot of this zoo is indoors, however I do not like how all of the buildings are linked with bridges and there are no on/off ramps for easy exits. There are two places to enter/exit the indoor section of the zoo. When you are in the interior buildings I hope you or your child does not get sick as it will be difficult to leave. I can't help but think this is a huge fire and safety hazard. The zoo itself is small, but great for younger kids. It is clean and workers are friendly. Some of the animals, such as the bear are kept in small quarters alone. The isolation seems cruel. They should make sure all the animals have at least one other animal to socialize with.
  • Very nice place to take you're family, friends or a date to. I went there the other day and was amazed by how clean it was. Yeah a little noise due to the construction but I am very impressed that this Zoo is growing in size. More attractions to see. Nice staff.
