ABOUT THE BRONX ZOO

With more than 7,000 resident animals showcased over 265 acres, The Bronx Zoo is the largest city zoo in the country! And with so many discounts available for the Bronx Zoo, there’s no reason to pay full price. You’ll see a vast array of animals when you visit the Monkey House, Jungle World with an amazing array of animals, the World of Darkness with bats and other nocturnal animals, and the Congo Gorilla Forest. Be sure to catch a Sea Lion and Penguin Feeding!

TIP: Speaking of feeding, check out our Self-guided Food Tour of nearby Arthur Avenue for some of the best Italian food in all of New York City!

TICKETS:

There are two types of tickets: General Admission and”Total Experience”.


Starting in 2018, the Bronx Zoo is included free for holders of the Sightseeing Pass, a tourist discount pass.


A General Admission ticket does not include some of the best parts of the zoo.

The Total Experience ticket does include them. They are:

  • JungleWorld
  • 4-D Theater
  • Bug Carousel
  • Congo Gorilla Forest
  • Butterfly Garden
  • Wild Asia Monorail
  • the Zoo Shuttle

If you buy a General Admission ticket you will have to pay $6 extra for each of those special exhibits. That will really add up! Therefore, it is worth it to go for the “Total Experience” ticket to make the most of your Zoo visit.

Ticket prices from March to November 4, 2018:

  • General Admission (can only purchase at the Gate)
    • Adult $22.95 / Child (3-12) $14.95 / Senior (65+) $20.95 / Children 2 years and under free. 
  • “Total Experience” (can purchase online or at the Gate)
