Admission is only $5 per person and it's a nice zoo. It's pretty small though and took us only 1 hour to see everything.

Nice place, inside and outside. Always improving. Certainly not San Diego Zoo, but what is there is well maninted and quality. Just might be one of the best small zoos in the country. My granddaughter LOVES the train!

The zoo wasn't large and didn't take long to navigate it in its entirety but it was well set out, easy to walk and quite pleasant. Renovation work was taking place, I am sure it will only improve as new exhibits are added / opened.

Hattiesburg Zoo is a small zoo without a big budget. Hence, it does not have the space or the funds to maintain large animals like elephants or giraffes. It does, however, have a good collection of smaller animals. It has an alligator, some interesting bird...More

Yes, it's a small zoo... but there are some great animals, everything is clean / organized, and best of all the price is great! $5 to get in, $2 for the train ride (skip this, it's not worth the money). Lemurs, prairie dogs, small cats,...More
