Kids naturally love animals in general I must say. We have been to the zoo for so many times ever since we become parents and the kids simply never get bored. My oldest gets excited just by hearing the word “zoo”.
We were a bit hesitant about getting the Minnesota Zoo membership at first. I mean it is $100/year and up for the whole family but we were wondering how often we would actually use it and how long it would take before the kids get bored and so forth. Still, we decided to go ahead and get it and try it out. I gotta say that it was a great decision. We sure have been to the zoo countless time since we got the membership. Now, you don’t have to get a membership to go the zoo for sure. If you will be visiting often, it is better to get the membership than paying the admission each time.
We’ve been there quite a bit since last summer and we usually stay outdoors and explore the outdoor trails. Now that it’s freezing cold, they have great indoor tropical trail for you to explore if you don’t want to be out there in the cold. We were there twice last week when it was 4 degrees !! It was all warm and toasty inside.
We stayed indoors the whole time and I took few photos to share from the tropical trail.
Here’s the path leading to the tropical trail. Cool photos of animals, some are in real close-up (macro shots)….
