New at the Henry Doorly Zoo This Season

Monkey's at the Zoo

Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo is one of the best and most beloved zoos in the country, with new exhibits opening all the time highlighting new animals, areas of the world, and activities to help children and adults alike expand their knowledge of the animal kingdom.

This year, the zoo has added or will add a range of new exhibits, like the Asian Highlands exhibit, which was partially opened in 2018 but won’t fully debut to the public until May 17, 2019. Finishing touches are being added now, and when it does open all the way, visitors will feel completely transported to Asia, walking past streams and up misty mountain paths past tigers, snow leopards, and sloth bears.

The zoo also announced recently that there will be new behind-the-scenes experiences that offer more information and closer contact with the animals. Backstage passes will be available for the zoo’s giraffes, the Center for Conservation and Research, the aquarium, the octopus habitat, and more.

You can even attend the Animal Art Experience, where one of the zoo’s animals will create a one-of-a-kind painting with colors of your choice. Each Friday a different animal artist will be featured, with artists including snakes, turtles, small mammals, and lizards.
