I have always wanted to go to check out this place and it is pretty awesome for a zoo in the Midwest. Went around mid day and found a close parking right in front of the North Entrance. The price of this Zoo includes the Aquarium as well so it's decent price. This place is so huge and so much to explore definitely needed an extra day to roam around. We didn't get to see everything but I was pretty impress with the desert dome. Lots of animals and creatures to check out. If you are in Omaha, this is one of those places to check out with your family or love ones. I was so lucky to have a chance to go on an adventure out of the blue. Can't wait to go back again to check the Aquarium next time.

We love this zoo. So much to see and just the right size so you don't get overly tired. My oldest loves riding the train. My youngest and myself LOVE the aquarium and especially the tunnel where you are surrounded by fish. I could do without the animals that live in the dark. I was NOT impressed with the spots in the floor that were wide open and had water and fish. Kids could easily fall into the holes and pool area. Wish there was a bit more variety for food as well.

This is the best zoo in the United States! They have a wide variety of animals, exhibits, and attractions. You can feed stingrays, fish, and giraffes. They have poured a ton of heart, soul, and of course money into expanding recently, to make it even better. The cost of a family membership is reasonable. The pass also gets you discounts at a lot of zoos around the country. The zoo is rather large, so make sure you have good shoes on. There's also two entrances, north and south, so you can split the zoo based on what you want to see. I've been going here for 20+ years now, and it just keeps getting better!

We love going to the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium! They have great exhibits and are working hard to improve animal habitats. They are family friendly, with activities suitable for all ages, especially with their addition last year of the kids adventure area and Alaskan splash pad. Handicap accessible and have options to rent wheelchairs and electric scooters, and a tram with four stops around the zoo. Nursing mother friendly with one nursing area and another being built, as well as great family bathrooms and changing areas. Several types of food available at different locations, although they are quite overpriced. They allow you to bring in foods and drinks if you would rather not buy it from the zoo. Members receive a discount on food, merchandise, and rides.

I loved this zoo. Everything seemed perfect. There wasn't too many people in a given area at a given time, and the zoo is huge. I walked around all day and didn't see everything. I rode the skylight, which gave me a great view, as well as the tram, which was a good way to get around the zoo. I saw a movie, which was entertaining and had very nice seating. I enjoyed all of the animal exhibits.
