Exhibit Closures

All exhibits areas are subject to closure for weather, maintenance and animal needs.  Times are subject to change without notice. Many of our award-winning exhibits rotate animals within habitats providing them with daily variation, enrichment and rest. Animals in these exhibits have a more unpredictable schedule, so you may or may not see every animal every time you visit.

  • Islands    Due to seasonal maintenance, some indoor and outdoor exhibits may be closed periodically.
  • Tiger Tundra — Amur tiger is on rotation in islands while exhibit is under construction.
  • Lion — off exhibit
  • Penguins — off exhibit for season
  • Pygmy Hippo – on exhibit
