Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Consistently ranked one of the world’s best zoos, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is the ultimate interactive zoo experience and a biological park leading the nation’s conservation efforts.

The Omaha Zoo redefines the term “zoo” by dedicating resources to saving and protecting species around the world. Each guest through the gate means another conservation story continues, and all 160-acres means families run wild so animals across the globe can run free.

Outside of a world-renowned conservation program, Omaha’s Zoo offers a variety of travel-worthy experiences. Walk through the world’s largest indoor desert and the largest indoor rainforest in North America. Explore exotic locations and underground caves to see thousands of animals from across the globe in their natural habitat.
