About Lincoln Children’s Zoo
Since 1965 the Zoo has become a place where children could get up-close to animals and surround themselves in scenic gardens.
The Lincoln Children’s Zoo is home to over 350 animals, more than 40 of which are endangered. Over 225,000 people attend the Zoo each year, making it the third most attended arts and science attraction in Nebraska.
The Zoo offers many amazing events for children and adults throughout the year including Breakfast with the Penguins, Brews at the Zoo and their hands on summer Zoo Camps just to name a few.
And soon there will be more to love about the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. With the recent announcement in March the Zoo will expand their vision to include four new amazing areas – a world-class giraffe feeding experience, an up-close tiger encounter, an indoor adventure where children will climb with monkeys and a plaza with a playful stream.
