Located in historic Como Park, this popular zoo, especially known for its California sea lion exhibit, also features a great cat display, gorillas and giraffes.

We love the Como Zoo and Conservatory. There is so much to do and see there. Lots of animals, beautiful flowers, gorgeous grounds to walk around. And all for free! We highly recommend Como Park to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing family day.

This is a very convenient park that you can visit for all sessions in Minnesota. Great outdoor park during summer time and nice indoor zoo during winter.

I love the Como Zoo and Conservatory. It is filled with life and light----which, especially in the winter months in Minnesota---can be so life-giving. In addition, the cost is just a donation, rather than ticket cost.

Beautiful gardens in different rooms. Very lush, steamy, tropical--wonderful in winter. When we were there earlier this year, there was a sloth in a tree and lots of butterflies and birds. Wonderful place!

Yes, they have wheelchairs available. The aisles are wide enough to easily accommodate one.
