Get FREE ADMISSION to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium on Monday, January 18, 2021, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Use this day off of work and school to see what the Zoo offers in the colder months.
There are plenty of indoor attractions to seek respite from the cold, including a tropical vacation at Discovery Reef and Manatee Coast, Bob & Evelyn’s Roadhouse with animals from Down Under, meet the gorillas in the Congo, slither on over to the reptile building, and explore Asia Quest including a visit with the elephants.
Many animals thrive in the cold weather including polar bears who can be seen swimming year round in pool water maintained with geothermal energy at a comfortable 40-65 degrees.
