Appreciate a family encounter that encourages comprehension, regard, and valuation for natural life with a visit to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. Travel to the Islands and get an eye to eye perspective of siamangs, Visayan warty pigs, Philippine crocodiles, and obfuscated panthers. Wander into the Jungle for an Odyssey of fun where you'll find our mammoth insect eating animal, the tricky fossa, the world's biggest rodent, the capybara, and the dwarf hippo.
Take in the beautiful bird's-eye perspective of the African Savanna before making a beeline for the PPG Aquarium and Water's Edge, home of the great polar bear and fun loving ocean otter. The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium is open each day of the year with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
