About The Minnesota Zoo

Updated on August 29, 2017

What The Zoo Has

This is Minnesota's latest zoo. It's been open about 15 years or so, but it's still sometimes called "The New Zoo." It's a very large zoo located in Apple Valley. They have different exhibits that come in at different times of the year, and there's a working farm that you can take a wagon ride to. There's even a monorail to give you a ride through the zoo if you're not big on walking.

Which Zoo Do You Like?

Both zoos have pros and cons, but I prefer the Minnesota Zoo. It's bigger, has different exhibits and more animals in it.

Which zoo is better?

      I love to visit the animals at a zoo, because they have animals that I would never see in my life otherwise. I have been to the MN Zoo and loved it! Nice topic for a lens!
