We visited this zoo over the course of two days There is alot to see and do. The train and the tram are great ways to get a bit more information about the animals. The aquarium was also very interesting!

Henry Dooley Zoo is always #1 in the world or in the top 3 depending on attendance figures. I don't believe you can see it all in one day. Beautiful habitats have been set up for the animals and it is always getting better.

Hello, there were very few exhibits that were closed. I think the giraffes were not there yesterday when we went. That was our second day. There is so much to see and do it would be impossible to see it all in one day. You... More
