lionsonrockFrom the plains of Africa to your own backyard, the Virginia Zoo has a world of discovery for you. Open year round, the Zoo offers family fun, education and excitement for everyone. The Zoo is open year round -- and winter is a great time to visit -- crowds are smaller and animals are active!                                            

Meet elephants, lions, kangaroos, meerkats and more. Kids can go nose to nose with entertaining prairie dogs in their interactive habitat with viewing bubbles. Take a ride on our Zoo train; explore the gorgeous gardens. It’s an adventure for the entire family!

The Virginia Zoo is located at 3500 Granby Street, Norfolk, VA 23504. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
