 “We celebrate Zoo Babies throughout May, so it’s the perfect place to spend Mother’s Day,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard.  “You can see all sorts of animal moms and their babies, ranging in size from a few ounces to 1,000 pounds!” 

There’s also a great selection of gifts in the Zoo Shop, including a statue of Bibi and Fritz created by local sculptor Tom Tsuchiya. 

When you arrive at the Zoo, please let our employees at the turnstiles know that you are a mother in order to receive free admission for the day. 

The Zoo opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. Members get Early Entry and are welcome to enter the Zoo at 9 a.m.  

DID YOU KNOW…. You pay more than $10 less per ticket, on select days, when you purchase tickets online!  That’s a $40 savings for a family of 4! 

*While supplies last.
