Hattiesburg Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • Entry prices are fair and very affordable. Especially compared to bigger facilities like Audubon. It's a very clean and family friendly zoo. A fantastic splash pad/hangout area for the kids. Good exhibits, and more every time we visit! Animals seem well kept and the staff is super engaging! Will always be a favorite for us!

  • A very fond memory with my little boy and my daughter. Cute little zoo that has a big bang effect to you when you leave. Staff for the train was in a hurry and informed us that there are no more rides after 4:48 p.m. They officially close at 5 p.m. That would be my only complaint. Make sure they finish there day out and not put visitors on the back burner.

  • This place was amazing! Very cheap. Well staffed. Nice and clean facilities. Great place to come on a date, with the family, or just to kill some time. I will definitely be back soon.

  • This is one of my favorite places in Hattiesburg. Exhibits are neat and animals are well cared for and visitor areas are kept clean. If you get lucky or time your visit right, you can catch one or more of the ambassador animals doing rounds with a keeper to meet visitors and learn a bit about the animal up close.

  • The price is amazing $5 and the animals are close enough to see. Food and snacks are reasonable. It read hot but there are plenty of cool zones and a big splash pad.

  • The posted hours for the zoo are 10 to 4 on Sunday. It's 8:oo pm and they're still blowing the train whistle. Why would that be happening?
