About Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium first began delighting visitors with its animal attractions in 1927. Over the years, the zoo continued to add new animals to its exhibits and became the first zoo in the country to have a gorilla born within its borders in 1956. The famous zookeeper Jack Hanna became associated with the zoo when he was hired as the zoo's director in 1978. It was not long after that in 1979 that the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium realized another first with the gorilla; the first third-generation gorilla to be born in a zoo in the United States was born at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium offers a variety of experiences for those visiting. The zoo has plenty of species to keep people interested, including amphibians, birds, fish, mammals and reptiles. After people are tired and hungry from seeing everything, they have several options for relaxing along with a good meal. The food court gives them options, such as pizza and Mexican cuisine but they may also enjoy a sit-down dinner at a restaurant like the Lakeside Grill.

When people visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, they will want to take a part of it home with them to commemorate the experience. Several gift shops will allow them to do so where they will be able to buy gifts for their family and friends and themselves as well. These stores also contain educational materials that will help them continue learning about the animals and exhibits after they have returned home. They will also be able to purchase clothing with the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium logo.

The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium also has shows that impress the guests. These are the opportunities that people have to be close to the animals if they dare. They can also enjoy the antics of unlikely friends, such as the zoo's Cheetahs and dogs. They have the privilege of watching the trainers as they train their charges. If it will make it easier for people who are traveling with a group, they may book a tour of the zoo. Tours are the chances people have of seeing the zoo from a different perspective than just as a visitor.
