Gift Shop at Louisville Zoo


The Louisville Zoo’s Gift Shops are the perfect place to find unique gifts for any occasion. For the kids, you can choose from our huge selection of plush animals or wide variety of books, games and toys. And if you’re looking for something a little more “grown-up,” we have beautiful jewelry, fun t-shirts and sweatshirts plus a great selection of fair trade hand-crafted gifts from exotic locations throughout the world.

Zoo admission/parking fee is not required to shop in the Main Plaza Gift Shop.


A precious new addition to storytime is coming for your little ones: “The Truth About Zoos,”  the Louisville Zoo’s first children’s book

Young readers will meet Annie – a sleuth for the truth who is questioning zoos.

A special “Annie’s Awesome Adventure” package is available in the Zoo’s Gift Shop
