This zoo is great! I came on a Wednesday in October on a cooler day and we got to see everything without a huge crowd! I came during the summertime on a nice Saturday and it was packed! We loved seeing all the animals, there were even 2 baby tigers! They keep on expanding the zoo for more animals. The gorillas, penguins and alligators are probably my favorite! I wish I lived closer, it is definitely worth a season pass! Saw several people jogging the trails, what a great idea!

Best so far. We have a membership to our local children's science museum which grants us reciprocity/free entry into other museums. This is the best of the 5 museums we have tried so far. It kept us very busy and interested for about 2.5 hours. I would suggest going early if it's a Saturday. We were there when it opened and went from nearly having the place to ourselves to being overwhelmed by others. We loved the ball machine, the dinosaurs rock exhibit and finished with an ice cream treat.

This place always has something going on. I recommend going with the membership as you will be back. There is lots of stuff to see. If you are not familiar with Omaha history, this is the place to go. They have a gift shop, ice cream shop and candy shop as well. Good for kids as well as adults. Watch for the temporary exhibits. Only distraction is the gift shop. They seem to hide the more historical things and have a clutter of novelty things.
