LEGO Master Builders have created a safari on display along a wooded path near Zoo Center, featuring incredible LEGO wildlife sculptures and activities for the whole family. Visitors will see lemurs, a tiger, hornbills, rhinos, gorillas, flamingoes, a giraffe, and other exotic wildlife along their trek, and can visit their real-life counterparts throughout the zoo. At the LEGO Construction Zone at the Dancing Crane pavilion, visitors will be able to construct LEGO wildlife sculptures and take part in the construction of a mystery mural. Guests can work with LEGO Master Builders one weekend a month on the Reptile House lawn. In addition to the LEGO fun, the Wildlife Theater will perform for guests as along the safari path. Guests are also invited to create their own animal prints and puppets based on the zoo's African animals with the help of artists from the Museum for African Art. Wildlife Theater shows, crafts, activities, and conservation learning stations will keep the whole family busy. For a full schedule of activities and exhibits, visit bronxzoo.com. Through September 3.

The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds.
With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
