This world renowned, 90-acre zoo is home to more than 12,000 animals; many of them are rare and endangered. 

The Saint Louis Zoo is dedicated to connecting people to animals. 

Meet Huckleberry and Finley, two grizzly bear siblings at Centene Grizzly Ridge, which opened in September 2017.

At McDonnell Polar Bear Point, visitors can see polar bear Kali in this state-of-the-art habitat that includes underwater views.

Penguin and Puffin Coast offers an underwater view of these oceanic birds.

Judy and Jerry Kent Family Sea Lion Sound is a 1.5 acre exhibit right in the heart of the Zoo. Visitors can walk through an underwater tunnel into the seal and sea lions' habitat to see the animals swimming all around them. The Sea Lion Show (in season) showcases sea lion behavior, animal fun facts and the need for conserving the sea lions' ocean habitat.

This is the perfect place for family fun. General admission is free. There are fees for some special attractions.

Closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Check the website to verify the need for reservations prior to visiting the Zoo, guest guidelines, and for special hours during summer and holiday periods.
