|About these ratings|
Though it's kind of small compared to other zoos across the country, Tulsa's iteration does do well with what it's got, according to recent guests. Although some are a little heartbroken with so few animals -- you'll find "THE lemur, THE giraffe, THE aviary," says a disappointed TripAdvisor traveler -- there are actually 2,800 animal residents in total. The chimpanzees, prairie dogs and Asian elephants are the most popular of the bunch. In spring, summer and fall you can take a tour of the grounds atop a camel (a super cool experience according to those who've had the opportunity to do so). And there's also a 25-foot climbing wall and a "Frogger" bungee harness ride.
The Tulsa Zoo and Living Museum sits pretty along 84 acres of the city's northeastern Mohawk Park. You can enter the zoo between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. in summer, and starting at 9 a.m. other times of year. The zoo then closes at 5 p.m. each day. Admission costs $8 for adults and $4 for children ages three to 11, plus there's a $2 parking fee at Mohawk Park from April to October.
