Gift Shop at Louisville Zoo


During the early reopening phases indoor locations will all be closed. The main Gift Shop’s outdoor area is open with a limited selection of items for purchase. We hope to allow guests inside and open more Gift Shop locations as it becomes safe to do so.


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 Gift Store on the front plaza.


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
