From The Armstrong Homeschoolers on 06/23/14

We love this zoo! The living museum is absolutely wonderful, and so educational. There are so many improvements that have been done throughout the years, and it continually makes this little zoo better, and better. The tropical rainforest building is really neat, and great in the wintertime because it is so warm!!! The combination of outside displays, and inside displays means that this is a destination for any time of the year. Another definite 'must-see' so pack a picnic and go enjoy!


From Sheila on 03/15/14

NICE ZOO we very much enjoyed our visit here last year and look forward to going back this spring! Facility was clean. Although this zoo is smaller than OKC Zoo it's still a great place to spend the day for great fun and quality family time!!! Support the Tulsa Zoo and great things will happen here!
