Desert Dome at Omaha Zoo © Dual Freq
In carrying out its mission of conservation, research, education and recreation, the Omaha Zoo has created Lied Jungle, America's largest indoor rainforest. Visitors can also explore the Scott Aquarium, Desert Dome, Cat Complex and Hubbard Gorilla Valley and Orangutan Forest, or catch a film at the Lozier IMAX Theater. The zoo also offers train and tram rides, the TreeTops Restaurant overlooking the rainforest and a variety of other fun activities, attractions and refreshment options. For those who don't want to visit the restaurants, there are lovely picnic areas at the zoo, and snack kiosks selling snacks. There are ATMs at the zoo and debit and credit cards are accepted.
Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium is widely acknowledged as being one of the best in the USA and should delight visitors of all ages. The zoo can easily fill a whole day with family entertainment if explored thoroughly.
