Description

The ARTIS Zoo contains a huge amount of different species including penguins, wolves, giraffes, and more. There's also an impressive art collection, a zoological library, a planetarium, and 27 monuments found throughout the area. If that wasn't enough, you can now get microscopic at Micropia and discover the secret lives of the planet's smallest creatures.

Elephants, penguins, giraffes, jaguars – all the usual suspects and more can be found at the Netherlands's oldest zoo. Walk among the beautiful buildings and soak up the atmosphere and animal sightings. Built in 1838, the ARTIS campus features several historic buildings. Their significance is sadly lost on most of the residents.

The whole experience is wonderfully wild, yet refined. There's art in its aquarium (alongside the sea creatures), an old-timey zoological library just behind the anteaters, and an excellent restaurant with a terrace overlooking the aviary. Yet another crowd pleaser is the Butterfly Garden, where you can see thousands of fluttering wings.

Once you've seen all creatures great and small... it's time to go even smaller with an optional trip to Micropia. The 2016 Museum of the Year shines a tiny spotlight on the world of microbes and shows how these unsung heroes affect and influence our lives.

Very happy to see all the smaller animals living well, however the spaces meant for the bigger animals disappointed us. They did not look happy at all, and that stopped the joy we were hoping to get from going to a zoo.

Place was really big and open, zoo had huge variety of animals. Didn't go into the space area or the micropia but I did go into the aquarium, slightly disappointing due to not many fish but overall great place
