Lots of different animal and habitats areas to experience. We are members of our zoo here in MN and we got a discount getting in. We spent about 4 hours here and saw pretty much everything. Was a really nice zoo.

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo was just recently named the #1 zoo in the world. Just one visit and it becomes so clear how they received that honor. When in the Omaha area stopping at the zoo is an absolute must!

I hadn't been to our zoo for a couple of years due to health problems with walking but this time my husband rented an electric cart for the day and we had a great time. They have done so many remarkable additions and improvements to the zoo I could hardly believe it. You need more than a day to see... More

This is the best zoo in the world. Period. End of discussion. With the completion of the African grassland exhibits, Henry Doorly redefined the zoo experience. Again. The. Best. Zoo. In. The. WORLD.

I've been going to the Henry Doorly Zoo every year since I was a baby. Love the zoo and its constantly changing and adding new attractions! My husband and I went there on our first date and go back every year, usually multiple times! Great for adults and kids!

Before we even begin, yes, ideally all animals would be free and safe from extinction due to poaching, and lack of natural resources. But we all know, that is not reality and for that I am so grateful for the zoos that help animals. Moving on, the newly expanded areas of the zoo have me so pleased and have me... More

Wonderful zoo! Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean. Plenty of exhibits indoor and outdoor. It had been a few years since I have been here, and a few more exhibits were added (giraffe and elephant houses). Also added IMAX option - very good.

We were gifted a membership for our family for a year. How wonderful!! We were thrilled to go over Christmas break for a mere three hour visit. That was long enough for a first visit for our tired boys (4 and 9), but they loved what they saw. We were very, very impressed by the rainforest, and we also enjoyed... More
