This is a GREAT zoo!! They have added several new exhibits and expanded/updated several others. I can honestly say I am proud of our zoo! When would you ever think you'd see a penguin in Wichita, KS?

Huge Zoo! Wonderful variety of exhibits! The Zoo does sell food (hamburgers,etc). I prefer to make sandwiches and take a lunch break with the kids for a picnic. The kids love it. Memberships are worth it!
