  • Explore the Maryland Wilderness, featuring the children's zoo where kids can watch otters swim over their heads, climb into giant bird nests, and more!
  • Ride a small-model diesel train on a one-mile circuit in an homage to the old Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
  • Meet grizzly bears, bald eagles, Arctic foxes and polar bears in The Polar Bear Watch and get up close to a colony of African black-footed penguins on Penguin Coast

Come and mingle with the animals and the people who love them most at Maryland Zoo. This 135-acre park is one of the oldest zoos in the United States, flinging open its doors in 1876. It's packed with interactive exhibits and over 2,000 animals including polar bears, penguins, snakes, giraffes, and a host of animals native to Maryland itself.

Zookeepers at the Maryland Zoo love their animals so much that when a little turtle was brought to them with fractured legs, they built him a wheelchair... out of LEGO! One year later, and this hero in a half shell was walking free again, albeit very slowly.

Interaction is everything here! Watch the polar bears swimming from underwater viewing areas. Touch rare domestic breeds in the farmyard, from pygmy goats to Cotswold sheep, barn owls, and adorable kunekune pigs.

There's more fun for the kids in Maryland Wilderness. Watch otters swim over your heads, make a leap across a lily pad, explore a cave like a native bat, or climb into a giant bird nest!

It's a real treat for Dr. Dolittles everywhere. Just look out for disabled turtles.
