Latest Statement regarding closure due to COVID-19
In order to protect the safety of our staff caring for our animals and servicing the public, we are temporarily closed to the public until further notice.
During these challenging times, our community is expressing even greater appreciation in the comfort, inspiration and connectedness we find through our shared love and awe of animals and nature. Members make a difference and we can’t wait to see you when the Zoo reopens. In the interim, visit mnzoo.org for new at-home learning tools, nature play and tune into Virtual Farm Babies now live online. Upon our reopening we hope to incorporate members into special experiences currently in planning stages, in addition to a very special offer for when you return.
