Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

Enjoy a family experience that fosters understanding, respect, and appreciation of wildlife with a visit to the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Take a trip to the Islands and get an eye to eye view of siamangs, Visayan warty pigs, Philippine crocodiles, and clouded leopards. Venture into the Jungle for an Odyssey of fun where you’ll discover our giant anteater, the elusive fossa, the world’s largest rat, the capybara, and the pygmy hippo. Take in the scenic bird’s-eye view of the African Savanna before heading to the PPG Aquarium and Water’s Edge, home of the impressive polar bear and playful sea otter. There is so much to explore at the Zoo, we provide 77 acres of fun! The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is open every day of the year except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Prices vary per season, so visit our website. Also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
