As part of the exciting new Florida project, Zoo Miami will be opening a new Front Entry Plaza. The new plaza will amaze visitors with charming creature art and unique design elements. The Front Entry will come to life with artistic and visual signature features, including an Art in Public Places installation and a 100-foot tower with animal silhouettes and video screens. A special “cloud” structure will encircle the plaza from above, treating visitors to an awesome light show that is especially mesmerizing at nighttime. The new Front Entry Plaza will also include a brand new gift shop and café, a multi-purpose event space and guest relations. And for the first time, an animal exhibit will be located outside of the gate, featuring the beautiful pink flamingos in a pond under the “cloud” structure. The splendor and state-of-the-art design of the new Front Entry Plaza will set the tone for visitors, adding a special artistic touch to the Florida project.
Orangutans and gibbons will be off exhibit from Jan 17 - 20 for exhibit improvements. Wildlife Carousel will be closed for maintenance Jan 17 - 20. From Jan 17 - Mar 2017, some areas of the Children's Zoo will be under construction to improve our guests' experience. We apologize for the inconvenience.
