Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium plans a phased reopening. Phase 1 includes no indoor access but allows outdoor guest usage with clearly defined guidelines for the health and safety of Zoo guests and staff. There will be timed ticketing to keep guest attendance at a capacity that allows adherence to the 6-foot social distancing recommendations. Phase 1 capacity will be no more than 3000 guests at any given time and requires a time reservation to be made ahead of the visit at OmahaZoo.com/Hours-and-Admission.
Phase 1 Reopening Begins June 1, 2020
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.
