Aquariums & Zoos
Go wild at a Michigan zoo or aquarium.
Across Michigan, zoos and aquariums offer close encounters of all kinds – and thrills for all ages.
Beyond the traditional experience, there are boutique zoos, animal sanctuaries and petting zoos to entertain the whole family. Whether you are looking for native species, or something more exotic Michigan zoos and aquariums deliver. Visit the world’s largest penguin center at the Detroit Zoo or take a family overnight safari at Binder Park Zoo near Battle Creek.
Go beyond the glass as you step back in time at the Belle Isle Aquarium – the oldest aquarium in the country and home to pufferfish, electric eels and other species from all over the world. Sea Life Michigan Aquarium brings you face to face with 5,000 underwater creatures, including an exhibit dedicated to native species of the Great Lakes. Ready to go wild?
