great family outing

the aquarium was my toddler's favorite part! of course food is high, but they allow you to bring things in from home.

Came here because the weather was so phenomenal! Lots of the animals were inside still and will be out this summer but the elephants and giraffes were so neat to see up close. The kids loved the IMAX theater. The dome with all animals was pretty impressive but the smell was so bad and it was very warm in there!... More

I have been to the San Diego zoo & the Denver zoo. I have to truly say that Omaha's zoo is my favorite of the 3!!!! So much to see and do. Great food, customer service and so many animals to view and learn about. Great descriptions by each cage and so many facts to read. Way to go Nebraska... More

Several new features drive me nuts- the radio music blaring as you enter and the non stop African music and nonstop carts with their exhaust at the level of the baby strollers! --we can go to the mall for that. It's hard to ruin the great layout and "feel" of HDZ. I prefer this zoo to all but the Berlin... More

I've always heard that this zoo was good, but it exceeded my expectations. My favorite part was definitely the desert dome and the kingdoms of night under the dome, in particular, the swamp exhibit. Cannot wait to come back.

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo should be on everyone's bucket list. It is one of the top rated in the nation, and once you have visited, you will see why. The exhibits are spectacular. For being in a midwest location, I am in awe of the wide variety of animals they have. It is so interesting and there is so much... More
