Visit Our Zoo

The zoo in Duluth, MN, is the ideal place to unleash your wild side no matter the weather. We’re open 7 days a week year-round!

The Lake Superior Zoo also features picnic tables (yes, you can pack your own picnic!) with a jungle playground and a giant cement snake for a great photo op – all included in zoo admission! And don’t forget to visit the Safari Café to fuel your zoo adventure with a variety of lunch and snack favorites.
