I am a sucker for zoos and aquariums, and I have been to a lot of them. It still surprises me just how awesome the Omaha Zoo is. The aquarium really is an architectural wonder, with long corridors under the water with benches that let you sit under the swimming fish. The indoor rain-forest and desert exhibits are also very good. They also have a huge outdoor space with the typical zoo stuff.

his is hands down the best zoo or animal park I have ever been to. It's a definite must see attraction. The exhibits are over the top and really capture the animals' natural habitats. Its like how Disney is really detailed oriented and really immerses you in the environment, but even Disney's animal parks can't compete with this one.

Most people wouldn't expect a place like Omaha to have one of the best zoos in the world, but it does. My favorite exhibits include the jungle (great to visit on freezing days in the middle of January), the aquarium, and the Kingdoms of Night. They also have a really nice new gorilla house, butterfly exhibit, and Madagascar building. I usually skip the big cats, which are housed in a facility that was world class when it was built in the 70's but kind of depressing now.

The Henry Doorly Zoo is one of the best zoos I've been too and is especially great for being located in Omaha. The highlight of this zoo is the aquarium. Sharks and rays swim over you as you walk through through the underwater tunnel. This zoo has almost anything you'll want to see, including an indoor butterfly habitat.

I love the Omaha Zoo, it is easily one of the best zoos in the midwest. I had visited as a kid, but going back as an adult is just as fun. They've added lots of new attractions over the years. The aquarium is my favorite part.
