Maryland Zoo in Baltimore

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore engages visitors with the wonders of the living world through personal encounters with wildlife. Set amidst the quiet, forested beauty of Druid Hill Park, the Zoo is home to more than 1,500 mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles representing nearly 200 species. Visitors can observe animals in naturalistic exhibits, interact with keepers and trained educators, and enjoy attractions such as camel rides, the Giant Tree Slide, and the KidZone petting zoo.

Established in 1876, the Zoo has been a popular destination for people of all ages for 130 years. It offers a unique and compelling setting for learning about wildlife, wild places, and the importance of conservation and environmental stewardship.

In the Maryland Wilderness exhibit, visitors “walk across Maryland ” from the freshwater marshes of the Chesapeake Bay westward to a piedmont stream, mountain cave, woodlands, meadow and working farmyard. Visitors discover the wonders of their most accessible natural world, the Maryland wilderness. Through signage and school programs offered on grounds, they are encouraged to protect the Bay. They learn that the entire state falls within the Chesapeake Bay watershed and that every drop of water, polluted or pure, finds its way eventually to the Bay.

Hours: Open every day from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Closed January, February, Thanksgiving, December 25, and the second Friday in June for ZOOMERANG.
Fees: $15.00 Adults (ages 12-64), $12.00 Seniors (ages 65+), $10.00 Children (ages 2-11), Children under 2 are FREE. Parking is free!
