The Bronx Zoo is large! There are 265 acres of wildlife habitats and exhibits to see, so be sure to allow plenty of time for your visit. 

General Admission Bronx Zoo Tickets

The least expensive way to see the Bronx zoo is with a general admission ticket, which can be purchased at the gate.

General Admission ticket prices are $22.95 for adults, $14.95 for children (ages 3 – 12) and $20.95 for seniors (65+).

However, if you have a general admission ticket, the 4-D Theater, Bug Carousel, Butterfly Garden, Children’s Zoo, Congo Gorilla Forest, JungleWorld, Nature Trek, Wild Asia Monorail, and Zoo Shuttle will cost you an additional $6.00 each. So, if you plan on taking in more than 2 of the zoo’s “extras”, the Total Experience ticket is the better deal.

Free Admission on Wednesdays

General Admission to the Bronx Zoo is free all day on Wednesdays. Free, of course, if a great deal. However, the zoo can get very crowded on free Wednesdays, and your free General Admission entry doesn’t include any of the extras at the zoo.
