Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium made some changes to ensure a “healthy you, healthy Zoo.” At this time, the Zoo is an outdoor walk-through experience only. About 1.8 miles long, the designated one-way path begins at the Main Entrance of the Zoo and ends at the North Entrance. Backtracking on the pathway is prohibited. Face masks are strongly encouraged. To plan your visit accordingly, please become familiar with the following guidelines we have in place.
All buildings are closed. No public access to indoor buildings including exhibits, restaurants, and the gift shop. No access to Bay Family Children’s Adventure Trails or Scott Alaskan Adventure Splash Park.
