If animals have to be kept in captivity, they do a great job of caring for them. The variety is good, and the grounds are very appealing. Nearby is the Museum of Nature and Science, which is wonderful also.

We love the zoo! It is not a massive zoo, so it’s perfect to do in a day. They have a lot of fun activities and exhibits. Try to get time to feed the giraffes

I Love Our Denver Zoo. I have been to many zoos, all over the world, and ours is a pretty darn good zoo. It's kept up well and the animals are well cared for, which is always a major factor for a good zoo.

I really enjoyed my trip to the Denver zoo. It wasn't too busy and I got to see a lot of cool animals. You could easily spend the whole day at the zoo. My favorite exhibits were the Mummies and Space.
