“Wonderful Exhibits”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

These are some of the best exhibits and habitats around. The grounds are gorgeous and everything is kept clean for people and the animals. Always enjoy a visit there! Kept a membership for years and years but with kids grown, we just visit occasionally now. Do keep up via online email notices of special events.

“Great little Zoo!”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

I take my kindergarten class every spring. The zoo has really committed themselves to improvement over the years. It is not as large as the Memphis Zoo, but it is very nice and very doable in one day:)

Reviewed 19 April 2012

If you are from my part of Alabama then you know the Birmingham Zoo. It is the only place you can go to have that great family zoo outing that so many love.

“animals not there”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

There were a lot of animals that the zoo used to have that it doesn't anymore. A lot of the exhibits were very dirty and looked poorly maintained. The staff was very rude.
