|About these ratings|
The Memphis Zoo's hieroglyphics-clad entryway leads to a five-acre primate habitat, a nocturnal animal exhibit, a vast big-cat area and more. All in all, you can observe approximately 3,500 animals, including the ever-popular giant pandas, Ya Ya and Le Le. The zoo's small size makes it easy for little legs to navigate, and lectures on the zoo's furry friends prove entertaining for visitors of all ages. According to one Yelp.com user, "This zoo is one of the best in the country and a hidden gem in Memphis."
Located in Overton Park in Midtown Memphis, the Memphis Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from March through October and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. October through February. General admission is approximately $15 for adults, $14 for seniors and $10 for children ages 2 to 11. Parking is an additional $5. A complete schedule of zoo events can be found on the zoo's website.
