Foursquare Tips

  • One of Birmingham's Best Attractions
  • The Birmingham Zoo has come a long way and is really a spectacular place. I still miss Monkey Island and the Bear exhibits.
  • Amazing! The Dino exhibit was really cool! And lots of baby animals along the trails of Africa!
  • The Sea Lion show at 10am & 2pm is fun for the kiddos. The indoor areas are great too. There is not enough baby/toddler seating in ANY of the food areas, so your kid may have to eat in their stroller.
  • Recycle your christmas tree here
  • Baked Salmon Roll was a amazing!
  • Great place for a casual daytime date. Check the weather, first, though.
  • Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my!
  • Go see the red pandas! They have two young ones right now who love to chase and play. They're unexpectedly in the predator exhibit.
  • Haven't been in years and it was great going again as newly weds to celebrate my wife's birthday. A Peacock posed for me with it's feathers up to take a picture and we played with Lorikeets.
  • Got kids? A zoo pass pays for itself quickly!!
  • They're trying to make it better. The middle section just past the entrance seems like such wasted space.
  • It's rather small, but there's plenty to do and it's well worth the price. You can finish this in about four to five hours if you methodicallly read and look at everything.
  • It was a very fun zoo, would recommend!
  • It's pretty clean but Monday's are not the day to go. Most shops are closed or lacking variety.
  • If you have kids/grandkids you should get a zoo membership. The best value around.
  • Elephants were great
  • The scenery is nice!! Very cool upgrades!!
  • Wonderful zoo. Bring cash for things inside. Personally found it difficult to see some of the animals but you can't help where an animal is sitting when you pass.
  • Be sure to bring a few quarters. You'll either be glad you did or sorry you didn't. Trust me on this. .
