    Visit the Zoo and say hi to the elephants.

    Definetely the best zoo I've ever been to. Alot to see though, so make it a day trip to see all it has to offer.
  • Natalie Skadra

    Ride the skyfari for $2..worth it.
  • Richard Lesley

    Go when all the kids are in school. So peaceful and empty.

  • Maria Rani

    Imax is a neat experience.

    Incredible zoo! Took all day to get through it. Amazing. Every little kid and big kid should go there at least once!
  • mike baumann

    If u can, come in on 10th street. You'll beat tons of traffic.
  • Steve Talbott

    Has to be a top 5 Zoo. Place is fantastic.
  • Miles Rausch

    I agree with everyone, the aquarium *is* amazing. However, it's also very popular. Parents with strollers and young kids take note - it's cramped and slow-moving on busy days, and there are few exits.
  • Adrienne Kensinger

    Still my favorite zoo! I love this place :)
  • Nichole Uhlik

    Watch for the loose bats in the Lied Jungle.
  • Keyleigh Watson

    Great zoo! Unfortunately is always filled with inconsiderate rude people and parents who purposely run into you with their strollers let their kids run around unsupervised.
  • Rob

    When the main entrance is crowded, the north entrance is usually open and empty. Parking is usually available north too.
  • Laura Snyder

    The Dairy Barn by the petting zoo is the COOLEST place on a HOT day! Stand under the vents near the windows!
  • Jeremy Reding

    Beats San Diego hands down, but watch out for all the strollers.
  • Christine Hawks

    If you usually visit in the morning, try coming by in the afternoon (or visa versa). You get to see a lot of different animal behaviors at different times of day!
  • Bri Hicks

    I've been coming here since I was a small child and I still love it every time! Definitely my favorite zoo by far!
  • The Harlem Globetrotters

    July 15-20 the Harlem Globetrotters will be in town hosting some fun summer skills clinics. Don't miss out! For more information
  • Andrew Kerr

    There's an iPhone app for the Omaha Zoo!
