The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. is open again and kids will be so happy to see the pandas, orangutans, lions and more.
Visit the orangutan exhibit to catch a glimpse of Redd, the zoo’s orangutan infant riding on his mother’s back or exploring his surroundings.
Head to the Kids’ Farm, home to alpacas, cows, goats, donkeys, and pigs. Children can even pet some of the animals. Other highlights include a large Asian elephant exhibit, the great ape, reptile and bird houses.
For 2020, you must get a timed entry pass online, regardless of whether you park at the zoo or walk in. Masks are required for everyone 6+ and recommended for all over age 2. More details on the zoo’s reopening can be found here, at the Welcome Back to the Zoo page.
The grounds of the zoo are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission to the zoo is free, though if you choose to drive, parking costs a flat rate of $30. The zoo is also accessible via street parking nearby.
