Overall this zoo is pretty good. It feels a bit smaller and more limited than the National zoo in Washington DC, which is a shame as that one is free, however, some of the opportunities at this zoo are excellent. I went to the penguin experience and it was both incredibly fun and cute, but also so educational. The zookeeper who ran the tour was funny, smart and very engaging. He was the second best part of the day (the first was obviously the penguins, sorry if you ever read this :p).

The zoo was really nice. It was really wooded and peaceful too. My girls loved seeing all the animals and the enclosures were beautiful. There was a lot of walking and some hills, but overall not bad. I think they had a tram, but we walked.

The Maryland zoo is nice and there are a lot of cool animals to see while there that you cannot see at other zoos. Comparing to the national zoo in DC, this zoo has penguins, polar bears, rhinos, and giraffes. Both zoos have Lions and elephants, and the national zoo has pandas. The national zoo has more primates and sometimes the orangutan will swing above your head. The Maryland zoo does have a nice chimpanzee enclosure, and although it does smell, it is not as bad as the great ape house at the national zoo. The Maryland zoo is older and it feels older and you have to drive through some run down areas of Baltimore to get there.

This place is amazing. It's not cheap and I'm used to a free zoo (being a DC native), but the ambiance is delightful and the land is so expansive. The animals look happy and not crowded like some other zoos I've been to. Highly recommend. The price is worth it.

What else is there to say except that the Zoo is awesome? The mansion house in particular is a lot of fun (my friend's wedding was there). There are also so many places to walk around, especially around Druid Hill Park. Great for when the weather gets warm!
