REVIEWS OF Bronx Zoo IN New York

Haripriya Sivaraman

Amazing and a well maintained zoo, covering wide variety of animals.If you have children, they would enjoy the most. If you are planning to be a frequent visitor, it’s better to get the membership - saves you money. Their restaurant is pricey $$. It’s better to get your food especially if your a vegetarian.

You may to spend a whole day there. It's nice place , where we can meet a lot of different animals, and take care of them. Everything very organized, staff frendly and nice! Awesome place for kids. Definitely recommend! By the way Wednesday general admission is free!

As far as zoo's go this one has about everything you could hope for. The tiger and gorilla exhibit are really something and there are lots of food and beverage options, you can even get beer which is great. The only downside is that this …

Always a great time at the zoo. I have been a member for a while now. This time we went for Boo At The Zoo and we had a blast. The candy trail was limited but fun along with the parade and hay maze (which was a lot confusing at some points and was really short). The activities throughout were really fun. The mind reading and magic show was awesome !!!! We are looking forward to the new activity with lights at the zoo this winter!

This visit was my first visit to a zoo and I am happy I went somewhere that animals feel like they are home. For those who have children it could be a one day adventureous ,educational trip. Don't forget strollers for your kids, otherwise they can't enjoy much. I really enjoyed Madagascar part. Remember animals are asleep at noon especially lion, bears and snow leopard so try to be there sooner. Additionally it is free on Wednesdays.

Mr Coughlan

Excellent Zoo.. We went on a Wednesday, and you pay what you want. We bought the tickets that have you the extra stuff like the monorail, dinosaur tour etc. I wouldn't have wanted to pay for these individually; none of them would've been worth the $4 or whatever it was! Really good selection of lizards and the like, loved it!

Patricia Gueverra

I went here with my family and the children in our family were very happy with this place. They enjoyed themselves and got to learn so much. The kids were so happy that they keep on asking about our next visit.

Robert Garcia

Amazing zoo that provides great resources for its animals and guests. It's a non profit organization that truly tries their best to ensure guests have a memorable experience no matter how many times they have visited!

Ivelisse Vazquez

I love the zoo, been visiting since I was a child. I need to read the visitor info better next time. I did not know you had to pay for the "full" experience. (To see everything) we saw what we could and left, until next time when we will be better prepared and see all of what the zoo has to offer. Very clean property. The restrooms are eco-friendly. Wonderful, helpful staff and friends of the zoo volunteers. Still such a beautiful place.

Nicola Glitz

Just got back from this amazing place! Best zoo by far that I've even been too! Visiting from Canada for a family vacation. There was hardly anyone there and our 4 hours there flew by far too fast!

Mike Grisman

Great way to spend a day, my kids (ages 5 and 7) had an absolute blast! The zoo is enormous, you won't be able to cover it one day, but it was still a lot of fun. They have great exhibits, the 3D movie was a lot of fun too, my 5 year old loved it! I think it's one of the biggest zoos in the world

Raphael Okutoro

I was a bit disappointed. The ticket sales online could be for Central Park Zoo. We had to buy additional tickets at the gate. However, the company was kind enough to refund my online purchase. It's really become commercialized. Don't recommend going in the summer. The animals are too hot, so they mostly stay indoors or don't want to be bothered; I don't blame them. Fall or Spring is best. Wanted our child to have the experience, but would have had to pay extra. Didn't see the Gorillas. You'd pay extra for that. Still an iconic place for me personally, and hat off to the hardworking zoo staff. Tough job!

Ruben Wilson

Like I tell people before, this zoo is wonderful. Beautiful is in the eye of the beholder. But if you want to have a good time you must go to the Bronx Zoo on Wednesdays, because the Bronx Zoo is " FREE " . go have a wonderful good time …

Cristina DeSantis

LOVE this zoo! My favorite place to take friends and family of all ages. 100% a full day trip so make sure to get there early if you want to see everything. Make sure you buy the full experience tickets also because it is so so worth it. …

We visited the zoo and went to the Dinosaur Safari. It was AMAZING! I liked it as much as my 2 year old son... maybe even a little bit more. We have an annual membership so it only cost $4 each adult. The dinosaurs were life sized, full scale and super lifelike. The guide was fantastic and it was such an enjoyable ride around the park. Can’t wait to go back.

William Welch

We love the zoo. We have been coming here for at least 10 years, a few times every year. It never disappoints. Very clean and well maintained. The animal enclosures are big and spacious.

Ivan Yang

Didn't have high expectation entering this zoo. But to my surprise, Bronx Zoo is really amazing. The zoo is kept really clean. It offers so many animals that are so unique and endangered that you don't see at other zoos, including World famous San Diego Zoo.

Karen Stoner

Went here on a class trip. The staff their are wonderful they are so nice and helpful and informative. This is my second time their and both times were great experiences. All the animals here look healthy and happy. The gorilla section is always my favorite they are just so happy and funny. Will continue to go back.

Sandrine Joëlle Petit

We think you should go. I have visited several world-class zoos and the Bronx Zoo lives up to the standard. It is both retro and modern, with its old beautiful buildings and its more up-to-date installations. It takes you away and does a wonderful job of letting you forget that you are in a huge metropolis. The more notable attractions are the Congo area where you can get up close with gorillas and they do a fine job of explaining their conservation efforts, and the Jungle area. I also enjoyed watching the enormous tortoises but the rhinoceroses clearly had decided that today wasn't a good day to hang out on the people side of their enclosure. We found the monorail ride to be a nice way to end the day when we were getting tired. If I had anything negative to say, it would be about the food offerings. The only food we found was fast food. It wouldn't hurt to have healthier choices, and perhaps a vegetarian option. If you have a day with nothing to do in New York City, it isn't a bad idea to get on the subway (and a bus) and make your way up to the Bronx to visit the animals, but try to get up early. The zoo opens at 10 and closes around 5 and you will definitely need that time to see all it has to offer. We got there around 11:30 and we didn't see everything.

D Manning

Cool place to come with the children. I brought my children over the summer on donation Wednesdays. They had a good time. The food is very expensive so eat before you come. I paid for the experience passes for the kids, it was nice.


Lots of fun. I would advise you take the monorails and the train for a nice assortment of exhibits without walking around the entire zoo. The zoo has tons of animals to check out from all over the world. Bring water and snacks or buy them from the near by deli

ann marie vavricka

Absolutely a must see! A lot of walking but well worth it. If you plan to return a second time in the same 12 months it's worth it to buy a membership! I bought ours 6 years ago and have never regretted it. Keep in mind that Weds. are …


As tourists we found the zoo to be a very worthwhile. We had a brilliant day out in the Bronx Zoo, loved the Congo area the best, it was a very hot day when we arrived but they have plenty of shaded areas. The bird sanctuary was also excellent. Food court was OK but kinda a bit pricey but then again it is a major tourist attraction. We got here just before 10 and still had a small queue but not much. Overall I'd highly recommend a visit if your in New York.

Kate Riola

The Bronx Zoo was an amazing place to bring my 2 and four year old. It was so interactive and the Children’s Zoo within the park was unbelievable. I would highly recommend it. Especially, in the fall with all the great Halloween and Fall activities they offer.

Gia Sterling

Hands down the best zoo on the East coast! No question...its massive. So, wear your trainers and get trekking. Dont forget to bring a sizable snack or two. There's loads to see. Cheers all!

Alka Anand

Nice zoo but very few animals. However we loved the bird varieties. Most of them I haven't seen before. I just want to add that if you are vegetarian please bring your own food as there is hardly 2/3 options for vegetarian and no pizza isn't one of them.

Brayden Mora

This Zoo was amazing! I loved how open and spacious everything was. The animals truly had room to move and live. Yes some of them were hard to see, but animal welfare comes first here, and I appreciate that. We went on a Saturday and even though it was full when we came in, the crowd was never a problem. I would highly recommend the full experience. Jungle World and the Congo experiences were amazing! And you get souvenir cups which were free to refill on the day we were there. I would highly recommend this Zoo and I would say that you need to carve out a significant amount of time to explore. We will definitely be back when our son can walk a little better so he can experience it too.

Alejandro Velez

It rarely gets any better than this. Carve out an entire day and take your time. If you don't see the animals on the first run, return later in the day and you'll probably spot them. Great number of diverse animals with lots to do and see. A must if you are in NYC.

Lori Wood

Went with my family and friends this past weekend and had a great time ! So glad we have such an awesome place to being our children to to learn about animals and nature . There are so many fun things to do from zip lining to an animated dinosaur safari. Can't wait to go back during the holidays and see the zoo all decked out !

Rachel Bales

What an awesome place! Oddly enough, I've been to a lot of different zoos, and even a couple abroad. This is definitely one of the top 3 in my opinion. It's beautifully maintained, and HUGE! Way bigger than I would have thought. We went during Boo at the Zoo so lots of visitors and staff were dressed up. They were awesome with all the kids. All around, a great experience. We spent about 5 hours there and were exhausted! My only 'complaint' is that it is really expensive. Like easily up to $150 for admission for a family of 4, parking, and if you want any snacks and/or gifts at the end. We were fortunate to be a guest of members so we didn't have to worry about admission, but I wonder how everyday families afford it. If you can, and anticipate visiting more than once in a year, I'd def recommend getting a family membership since it's pretty much paid for itself after two visits.

Alisa Jeffries

Even a whole day wasn’t enough to see everything. We had so much fun. I highly recommend coming in October. Some of the animals were sleeping or hiding, but that’s the way of all zoo animals. The children’s zoo is the best I’ve ever seen. My nephew had a blast.

Donna Lang

Great place to go. Its does take all day then see everything. We stay 5 hours didn't see everything but its was great what's we did see their. Workers very nice

Pam Beckham

I watch the Bronx Zoo on TV so I wanted to visit the zoo in person while in town. It was wonderful! We took the subway train and it was so easy and everyone is so helpful at the station and on the street. I would come back again now we know how easy it is to get around.

Trev Carter

Great zoo, bigger than most. You most likely won't be able to see everything in one day but the visit is well worth it. I spent about 5 hours and felt like I got my money's worth; take the monorail ride if possible. Really neat feature that is included in the full price of admission along with other perks. Oldest zoo in the United States and it's one of the greatest. Family friendly and wheelchair accessible.

Sheree Adelson

The animals were beautiful and we were luck to see so many. The monorail enabled us to see every animal in that area. The best part of the day was the Wild Animal Encounter with a cheetah. To be able to hear him purring and look into his eyes was amazing.

N Bozell

It's not always easy going to a zoo where you are seeing animals outside of their natural habitat, however you can definitely tell that the Bronx Zoo cares about its animals. We had a great first visit and will definitely be back. There is so much to see so come with a plan and get there early if trying to do it all in on new day.

K. Del-Mooro

We have a membership for 3 or 4 years straight. It is an investment. Our family enjoys the Bronx Zoo several times a year. They are always mixing up events and themes. We look forward to holidays at the Zoo, especially Boo At The Zoo. This year's Dinosaur attraction was pretty decent and the kids enjoyed themselves. BEST zoo in the United States.

christopher abrams

Wow what a wonderful day. Great company, great weather, what a great zoo.... I haven't been to the Bronx Zoo in a least 40 years. I've missed to much.... I went today to support my mother and 25 yr old son for the psoriasis walk at the Bronx Zoo. I got so much more than walking for a great cause I got to see Lions, tigers, bears, etc etc.. 5 star Day all around...
