Your visit will be a little different than in the past--all guests will follow a one-way path through the facility to see many of their favorite animals and wildlife habitats. The safety of our guests, staff, volunteers, and animals is our top priority—you can read more below about the steps we’re taking to keep you safe.

Attendance is capped each day and staggered by 30-minute increments to limit the total number of guests in the facility at one time and provide ample room for physical distancing.

Free hand sanitizer stations are positioned throughout the facilities.

Staff are continuously cleaning high-touch surfaces like credit card machines, tables, chairs, and more.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. By visiting an Audubon facility, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Learn More About Our Reopening

 A limited menu of food and beverages is available for purchase at concessions outlets throughout the Zoo and in the food court inside the Aquarium.

If a guest feels sick before their reservation, we ask that they not visit and contact us at AIR@AudubonInstitute.org to help reschedule their visit

TICKET RESERVATIONS

Entry times are offered every 30 minutes, with the last entry 1 hour before closure times. There is a limit to how many tickets we can sell for each entry time and time slots may sell out, so we encourage you to get your tickets at least 24 hours in advance.
