  • This was a very nice zoos with many well designed spaces to view a wide variety of animals. I was really impressed with the zoo staff stationed at many of the locations and were eager and available for questions. This is also a very manageable zoo: there is a lot to see but one can see most everything within a 4 hour visit. The large cat area and some of the more unique animals were my favorites. Parking is also convenient in the garage adjacent to the zoo. Yes, it cost $16 to park but it's Philly! Also the zoo has a rather hefty ticket price so I took the advice of another google reviewer and purchased my ticket at a AAA office for a nice $9.00 discount. My main reason for 4 stars as opposed to 5 is because to I compare it to a couple of amazing zoos I have seen in Europe. This is one of the nicer U.S> zoos I have visited.

  • The zoo was great! My kids (6 & 3) loved it and my husband and I enjoyed it as well. We went in August on a very hot day but there were plenty of indoor exhibits and lots of tree coverage. There were plenty of animals for the kids to see and everything was clean and we'll kept There was also a little area where they had rides for the kids. If we lived closer we would definitely purchase annual passes!

  • America's first zoo park. Very well maintained. They've done a great job of blending old and new parts. All nicely shaded so that people and animals don't melt in the summer heat. Highly recommended for kids. As with most major zoos they offer an annual pass. For locals that would seem pretty good value.

  • This is one of my favorite places in the world. In June 2016, I got to work here as a part of their high school student program. I love this zoo and everything about it. Although many people are upset about the elephants leaving, the zoo still technically owns them, and it is a testament to how much the zoo cares about its animals. Plus, the new Zoo360 that they have is an amazing idea. I cannot wait for the future of this zoo, and see how it continues to expand upon Zoo360. If I am going to be honest, I have been to zoos that are actually better than the Philadelphia Zoo, proving to me that there is a whole world of zoos out there. However, this zoo has shown me what there is in the world and I will always love and be grateful for this place.

  • Always a delight to go to the zoo! My daughter had a wonderful time seeing the animals up close, especially the monkeys. We went on a Sunday, and I'm very glad we got there right when the doors opened because had we not, we would have wasted most of our day standing in line. While the happiness going to the zoo brought my child was worth price, when everything was added up - tickets, parking, lunch- the expense was so high that going back is almost cost-prohibitive.... However: a) if you are a AAA member, tickets can be purchased for half price at any AAA Store; and, b) the recent birth of the zoo's baby giraffe is quite exciting and a reason to crack open the piggy bank.
