  • Great small zoo! Avian flu concerns had some birds off exhibit, but that was communicated well. Giraffe exhibit is great. Definitely worth a visit & a nice alternative to the massive zoo in Omaha

  • We love visiting Lincoln Children’s Zoo. We see animals doing different things at every visit. The staff members are always so friendly. We also love that the zoo is growing.

  • I love this zoo! Honestly, I'm from Omaha and since we have a great zoo I didn't think this one was worth going to. But I was so wrong! It's a great zoo for kids. It seems like it half zoo and half jungle gym. So many fun things to climb and play on! And my kids love feeding the giraffes!
  • It's a great little zoo for kids! Tons of cool animals and interesting facts to read to the kids! And plenty of things to keep the parents occupied as well. All in all it's a great place so spend a couple of hours with your family on a calm nice weathered Sunday afternoon!
