I have been coming to the St. Louis zoo since I was a little girl. I now enjoy taking my own children and love the new improvements and exhibits.

Beautiful exhibits. Highlights include walk thru sea lion tank, polar bear, and butterly house. Hands on experiences in the childrens zoo and stingray cove. Free admission, with nominal fees for some attractions inside.
