Well, it;s free if you need it to be. Donations are encouraged and well worth it. Especially in our long winters it is a welcome warm and green respite. the seasonal shows are always beautiful and we spend many happy hours inside with our cameras.

I love going to the Como Zoo Conservatory on a cold day in the middle of winter. Walking into a warm, humid environment with green plans and beautiful flowers is exactly what you need. I try to go earlier in the morning on a Saturday to avoid the crowds. However, it is just as enjoyable with so many people. Don't forget to check out the sloth in the newer part of the conservatory. He is fun to watch!

This is a very nice small zoo. The animals seem very well cared for and were very active - even in winter. I recommend going to visit!
