Time your Bronx Zoo visit for a weekday morning to escape the crowds. Once you’re inside the park, you can stay as long as you like, which is a good thing as there’s so much to see.
How long does Bronx Zoo take?
If you are visiting with children, you may need four hours to explore the Bronx Zoo.
Children tend to linger longer around their favorite animal enclosures, attend feeding sessions, keeper talks and try out numerous experiences.
Families that break for lunch tend to take more time.
If you want, you can also turn it into a full-day outing because Bronx Zoo entry tickets don’t have a time limit.
If you are in a hurry, you can walk past all exhibits and experiences in 90 minutes.
