Unfortunately, pets, guide dogs and other service animals are not permitted at the zoo due to the nature of the business and the safety requirements of the animals residing at the zoo. See below for our accessibility policy. The Ecomuseum Zoo can arrange for you to be accompanied by a volunteer naturalist guide for those who require assistance.
The most frequently asked questions about the zoo visit!
At this time of year, the animals are all active. However, they always have the choice to be visible or not, for their well-being. They all have access to hiding spots in order to enjoy a little privacy if they wish. We invite you to go around the zoo several times if you were unlucky on the first round; this can lead to memorable encounters!
Of course the length of your visit will depend on the time you spend at each living space. On average, the visit takes approximately 1:30 to see all the animals and have the chance to observe them. The length of your visit will naturally be longer if you choose to take a break for lunch or a snack.
Absolutely. We even have a recommended route on the Ondago mobile app to save you from a passage with stairs in the duck aviary!
Vending machines are available on site for snacks and beverages, but it is best to bring a packed lunch if you are looking for a complete meal. We have an indoor lunch area and an outdoor picnic area (available in May). **On weekends during the summer, Twiggs is on-site to serve lunch! **
Parking is free for all our visitors.
The presence of guide dogs and other assistance animals is unauthorized at the zoo due to the inherent nature of the organization. A vast majority of the site is wheel-chair accessible. Consult the full policy to learn more about accessibility at the zoo.
