This was a great place to celebrate our grandson's first birthday. The party package was great and the staff was awesome. The little ones really enjoyed the Animal Encounter part of the party. While the zoo is smaller, it was the perfect size for the...More

Thank you for your kind words. We're glad your grandson's party was successful.
Such a small, sad zoo that I forgot to take photos. They’re known for their tiger, but that has exhibit had been closed for some time. Tiny for a zoo. I’m sure they care perfectly well for the animals, but few looked like they were...More
We bought a family membership and have really taken advantage of MANY Saturday morning trips to the zoo. We have even enjoyed a picnic lunch in the park that is adjacent to the zoo and lovely walks along the Brandywine River.
Brandywine Zoo is uniquely set in the middle of the Brandywine Park, so you have the animals to visit, then picnic alongside the Brandywine River. The red pandas are absolutely adorable, and the kids can watch the river otters gliding through the water through a...More

Hi Susan - We're so glad you enjoyed your visit. Come back again, there is always something happening at the Brandywine Zoo.
Although there were some exhibits closed, it was a good experience. It is a small zoo, so they don't carry a lot of animals. But I think they have some uncommon animals at the zoo that people would be interested in seeing. Be prepared to...More

Hi, Glad you enjoyed your visit. Have a great holiday!
A friend and I recently took our toddlers to the Brandywine zoo for an afternoon. We went at midday during a hot and humid summer afternoon, which I would not recommend. Most of the animals were sleeping in the shade or otherwise concealed from view...More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how you feel. We are a small zoo, but we do have ongoing programs to engage and educate visitors about the animals, such as Reptile Shows, Keeper Talks, Creature Features and Storytime. Sounds like the...More
I went here to kill some time before heading to little Italy and it is very nice but very very small great for kids I guess and park and rose garden near by but I walked the hole thing in like 15minutes.
Went to the zoo as a way to walk outside on a beautiful day. It was a great experience. Very walkable, lots of animal exhibits and it's geared toward children, so their day is also enjoyable. A small treat.

This is a lovely place to visit to kill an hour but it has got to be the US’s smallest zoo, in fact I don’t even think you can call it a zoo! There’s like 15 different animals from reptiles and farm animals to foxes...More
