Visit the Zoo

At the Lake Superior Zoo, there’s no time to hibernate. We’re open year-round.

The zoo in Duluth, MN, is the ideal place to unleash your wild side. Here, you’ll find animals, the zoo train, special tours, a daily calendar of activities and much more.

The Lake Superior Zoo also features picnic tables (yes, you can pack your own picnic!) with a jungle playground and a giant cement snake for a great photo op – all included in zoo admission. And don’t forget to visit the Safari Café to fuel your zoo adventure with a variety of lunch and snack favorites.

View the zoo map to see all that’s in store.

We’re looking forward to plans for future renovations! These plans require part of the Northern Territories and Polar Shores areas at the zoo to be closed. Click here for more information.

Hours: Open Every Day!
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Last admission is one hour before closing. But fur roaring out loud, don’t cut it that close! We recommend allotting at least two hours to experience all the zoo offers.
