For almost 50 years, the Lincoln Children’s Zoo has provided Lincoln-area children with the opportunity to learn firsthand about the Zoo’s many special critters.

Our mission is to enrich lives through firsthand interaction with living things. We strive to provide our visitors with unique ways to connect with the natural environment and instill a love for the environment in young children.

The Lincoln Children’s Zoo is a treasure for Nebraska as it is one of only five zoos in the nation dedicated to educating our youth. The Zoo’s design is tailored specifically for children—providing viewing areas at a child’s height, animals that are within reach, and easy-to-read signs.

Numerous hands-on learning exhibits—such as Firsthand Farm and Critter Encounter—encourage children to touch the animals and ask questions of the staff. This one-on-one interaction makes lasting memories—and inspires children of all ages to not only care about nature, but to take action to protect our environment.

Accessible by StarTran route #50 College View to 27th & "A" Streets. Walk a half block north along 27th to the Zoo Entrance.
