Moms of all ages get complimentary admission into the Zoo on Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day is always popular, so expedite your entry by purchasing and printing tickets at home. Complimentary admission tickets for moms will be available at Audubon Zoo's front gate when you arrive!

Shop at the craft tents and pick out something special for your mother. Special treats are available for purchase so Mom doesn’t have to cook on her special day.

Be sure to visit Cool Zoo while you are here! This wild and wet splash park with a fun lazy river is a kid favorite!
