The Lake Superior Zoo is the only zoo in Northeastern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin. As the 19th oldest Zoo in the United States, we have a rich history of providing close-up animal experiences.
Our leadership team is dedicated to carrying out the zoo’s mission: providing close-up animal experiences that inspire connections to wildlife including action toward conservation in our region and around the world. We do this through numerous animal exhibits, animal enrichment demonstrations, educational programs and camps, events, and more.
We are located on more than 19 picturesque acres, including rocky hillsides, majestic pines and beautiful Kingsbury Creek. One of only a few Duluth, MN, attractions open year-round, it attracts thousands of visitors annually. Plan your visit to unleash your wild side today.
