It's 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 1,700 animals from around the world.
The zoo boasts some of the best penguin, polar bear, orangutan and chimpanzee exhibits in America. Our polar bears, Berlin and Bam Bam love their home in Polar Bear Passage. Come see our "must-see" world-class penguin exhibit, home to three species of penguins, and get nose to nose with primates when you swing into Orangutan Canopy. What does a stingray feel like? Find out at Stingray Bay, the zoo's newest touch tank housing two species of stingrays and bamboo sharks.
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.
