|About these ratings|
Visitors traveling with children in tow might want to make some space in their itinerary for the zoo. The gorillas, leopards and penguins (among about 1,400 other species) housed here see about 1.2 million visitors a year. There’s also an aquarium, an insectarium, a butterfly garden and planetarium.
One TripAdvisor user, who visited in 2010, says: "The price was a bit steep -- 18.50E for each adult! After paying that, I thought this thing better be good -- and it was!" Several visitors expressed sadness over some of the relatively small-size animal pens. But one TripAdvisor user adds this helpful bit of advice, "If you want wild animals to walk free don't go to any zoo!"
Adult admission costs around €20 EUR (or about $27 USD), and the zoo is open daily. For more information, visit the Artis Zoo’s website.
