Even though the temperature never got above 6 degree F on the day we visited, there are so many wonderful animals indoors, that we still had a wonderful time!

We liked it. It was cold winter so we moved from building to building seeing great animals and nature.
It may be best to visit in other season to see more. I wish they have more choices for food as there is only one restaurant in winter time. We didn't see much as there is a lot. My advice is to start early and pace to see most things in a day.

As parents of 4 we have visited our share of zoos. It was a cold, windy day in December but decided to give it a try. We arrived at opening and stayed until closing. We saw only a handful of people and had many of the attractions to ourselves. The dome was awesome and we had a hard time getting the kids to leave. This zoo should be on everyones bucket list, regardless of age or the time of year you are able to visit. Hats off to the young man working the elephant room!!

We love going to this zoo in Omaha. It’s rated one of the best in the world for a reason! So glad it is so close to home. We go at least once per year. The Halloween event during October is super fun for the whole family. Animals are well taken care of, and they literally have everything! Just as good as the San Diego zoo.
