AQUARIUMS & ZOOS

Lions & Tigers & Octopi Oh My!

Many know the state of Minnesota as the land of 10,000 lakes (there’s more than 11,000 actually), so it’s no surprise that we take natural habitats—and their inhabitants—seriously. Get an up-close-and-personal look at them all at two vastly different zoos and a world-class aquarium.

Como Park Zoo & Conservatory

Minnesota’s oldest zoo houses more than 60 species, an outdoor music venue, and the beautiful Conservatory. This community zoo is just that—quaint enough to stroll through, yet big enough to see many exotic animals.
