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!!
  • 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. .
  • It's large so prepare to walk, a lot. After general admission, there are a few things you can pay extra for like riding a Camel or feeding a Giraffe. Some animals are hard to see, but it's still nice
