The zoo was nice...small, but nice. It was a very fun day, and I was thrilled to see the jaguars, which I don't think I've ever seen in person before. If I lived closer to Baltimore, I might go back again, but living so close to DC and having access to the free National Zoo, I don't think I would pay the prices to go to a smaller zoo so far away without another groupon deal.

I think tickets should be discounted on days where there is significant rain - ESPECIALLY when it is cold AND rainy. I also think that visitors who are present before the weather becomes intolerable should get discounts on a future visit. The rain was light when we first went inside, but became increasingly colder, wetter, and more miserable. Because of this, our first experience is not half as positive as it should have been, and not having the full experience (especially with so many of the animals not visible due to such conditions) definitely affects any decisions to go again. Admittedly, if there was a "rain check" discount given, I would definitely be going back regardless of what was missed out on during the first visit.

I love the Zoo! I lived in the city until I was 16 and would go often. We took our daughter many times and I chaperoned many school trips and now take my 3 yr. old grandson. I hope you receive the funds to rehab the old wrought iron cages that are so beautiful. We know now that they weren't great for the big cats but I always "sneak a peek" when I'm there to reminiese!

About This Deal

Zoos offer a safe and informative haven to observe wild animals, which typically nest inside department stores behind an impenetrable fort of last season's paisley trench coats. Get a better glimpse with today's Groupon, which gets you membership to The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. Choose between two options:

  • For $45, you get a one-year family membership (a $99 value).
  • For $30, you get a one-year individual membership (a $60 value).

Situated on 160 acres of Druid Hill Park and founded in 1876, The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is the third-oldest zoo in the United States. With a membership, you’ll get the following benefits:

As visitors wander among the habitats for more than 1,500 birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles representing nearly 200 species, they can closely observe the naturally social Addra gazelle or debate Cartesian philosophy with the African slender-snouted crocodile. In the Polar Bear Watch exhibit, late-blooming Arctic explorers can set forth on a tundra buggy to view Anoki, Magnet, and Alaska, the bear the state was named after, cavort in and out of the polar ice pool. In addition to exotic species, displays of local fauna can be found in the Maryland Wilderness section of the zoo, home to The Children's Zoo.

Experts field questions about the animals during 15-minute keeper chats, held daily at the African watering hole or the leopard-training demo, and at the polar bear, chimp, and okapi or warthog habitats. After sating your gnawing hunger for zoological knowledge, silence the voice in your stomach with a picnic lunch at one of the zoo's several open-air eating areas. For transportation to the bustling epicenter of the animal kingdom, board the free tram.


The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore received a good review from Frommer's and has been featured in the Baltimore Sun. TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes, and Yelpers and Insider Pagers agree on a four-star average rating.

  • The Chimpanzee Forest, Leopard Lair, and African Watering Hole are fun, but the best part is the children's zoo, with its lily pads, tree slide, farm animals, and Maryland wilderness exhibit. – Frommer's
  • The zoo features an excellent Africa section, a good arctic section, and a fun swamp to venture through. – musicalsteve82, TripAdvisor
