The Minnesota Zoo

Over 1 million visitors annually make the Minnesota Zoo one of the most popular things to do in the Twin Cities. Visit soon to explore the Northern Wilderness in a host of exhibits you won't find at most other zoos.

Make the award-winning "Minnesota Trail" your first destination. Styled after the North Woods, this trail takes guests through a comprehensive collection of native Minnesota wildlife, including wolverines, cougars, river otters, gray wolves and majestic bald eagles. Head next to the "Northern Trail", home to the two-humped Bactrian camel, musk ox, black-tailed prairie dog, gazelle and the guest-favorite Amur (Siberian) tiger.

Along with thousands of animals to discover, the Minnesota Zoo features the chance to learn more about the zoo and its inhabitants from on-site naturalists. Look for them in the bright blue shirts. Be sure to catch a show at the IMAX Theatre, also on-site.
