Mother's Day Celebration at the Zoo


Moms Are Free on Mother's Day

(Pittsburgh) (May 2019)—Inviting all mothers to visit the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium this Mother’s Day on the Zoo and receive free admission.

Spend a day with mom strolling through the Zoo enjoying the animals. Stop by the gorilla yard and see Moka and her baby, Frankie.  Frankie is just beginning to explore his yard.  Our wallaby mom and her Joey are now out in their yard this Mother’s Day. See if you spot the baby wallaby.
