Guided Tours:

Guided tours are walking adventures that take your group of 30 or fewer to the animals' exhibits to observe firsthand the unique behaviors and adaptations of the creatures of the Erie Zoo. Tours are best suited to school-aged groups and adults and last either 30 or 60 minutes.  We can tailor a tour to suit your group's educational needs.  Walking tours are not available during mid April through mid-June.

Behind-the-Scenes Tours:

The animal behind the scene tours that are currently available are the rhino, penguin and the Hilbert primate habitat.  While you may ask for a specific area to tour, we cannot guarantee that a specific behind-the-scenes area will be available on the day of your tour. We reserve the right to change tour areas as needed for the health, safety, and security of our guests and our animal residents.  Please click the button to learn about other animal experiences.
