The zoo is great. Clean, fun. A lot of the food stops in Africa aren't open all the time so that sucks. Food isn't TOO expensive but we always pack a cooler. Summer time a lot of the animals are not out bc of the heat. Best time to go is spring and fall. If you are local, but the friends of the Zoo pass. It's worth it.

Excellent for family travelers. Check out the Helzberg penguin exhibit, ride the train, stare at the gorillas.

If you are expecting a zoo on the level of Omaha, St. Louis, or San Diego, this isn't for you. However, it does offer a wide variety of wildlife. It's good for a nice time out with your family. If you want to take a nice, leisurely walk while checking out some exotic animals, this is a good side trip for your family. You may not spend the entire day here, so I would recommend you pair this with another side trip on your visit to Kansas City.

Be prepared to walk...a lot! A regular visit is fine, but be sure to check out the multiple special events at the zoo throughout the year.

too much walking between exhibits, doesn't seem like there's much look at either. the ski lift through the African exhibits was neat but st. louis zoo trumps this zoo
