12 Dec Visit the Minnesota Zoo
Visit the Minnesota Zoo
Let me tell you about it
The Minnesota Zoo opened in 1978. It was a revolutionary design. With much more space the animals are organized in their natural environments as opposed to their species. Exhibits began with six themed areas, including three themed walking trails.
It is located at 13000 Zoo Boulevard, Apple Valley, MN 55124. To reach them by phone call 952-431-9200.
The Minnesota Zoo is temporarily closed for daytime attendance due to the recently revised guidelines to help curb the state-wide spread of COVID-19. You can help support the Zoo by attending our Nature Illuminated night-time drive-thru starting December 3, 2020 and ending January 17th, 2021.
Here is what they say about Nature Illuminated.
“This winter, there’s a magical world waiting for you at the Minnesota Zoo. A one-of-a-kind drive-thru experience featuring stunning light work and larger-than-life animal art installations. All this from the comfort of your own vehicle. Join us as we shone the spotlight on some of the world’s most endearing and endangered animals. And learn how our collective actions can help save our planet’s wildlife.”
