As a family destination, the Houston Zoo is one of the best attractions in Houston. With over 6,000 animals and a friendly and knowledgeable staff, kids and parents will have a blast learning about their favorite primates, marsupials and even dinosaurs. Daily animal meetings and events make visiting the zoo a fun experience while providing a day full of learning for inquisitive minds.
