There is always a new adventure at the Kansas City Zoo. The Kansas City Zoo is one of the top zoos in the United States. Located on 202 acres in Swope Park, the zoo is home to more than 1,100 animals from around the world.
The zoo boasts some of the best penguin, polar bear, orangutan and chimp exhibits in America. Our polar bears, Nikita and Berlin, love their home in Polar Bear Passage. Come see our “must-see” world-class penguin exhibit, home to four species of penguins, and the new Orangutan Canopy.
See our website for events, special packages, ticket prices and other details. (Extended hours, Labor Day-Memorial Day.)
The zoo is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
