Visiting the Boston zoo is always a fun family activity. Here’s what you can expect to see.

Zoo Exhibits

Visit the Aussie Aviary and feed the flocks of Budgies – a type of parrot – then continue the Australian exploration on the Outback Trail, where you might hear some kookaburras in the trees or spot a red kangaroo. Check out Butterfly Landing to see some winged beauties, and visit the Giraffe Savannah and Serengeti Crossing to see African animals like zebras, warthogs, and wildebeests.

Fun Activities for Kids

The Children’s Zoo offers fun and exploration for kids. They can visit different animal “neighborhoods” and see how they live, from woodlands to wetlands, grasslands, and thickets. There’s a variety of animals to meet, including prairie dogs, red pandas, and turtles.

Don’t forget to hop on a camel’s back for a ride, tour the zoo by train, or take a spin on the carousel. The zoo additionally hosts a continuously revolving calendar of special events, programs, and activities for families. Zookeeper chats, mystery animal encounters, and events like Roaring Nights and Parrots and Pirates Day keep things interesting.
