St Louis Zoo

St Louis Zoo

The St. Louis Zoo is one of the best zoos in the country with over 11,000 animals and many natural habitat exhibits. The history of the Zoo began with the acquisition of the 1904 World's Fair Flight Cage which is still in use today. In 1913, the city of St. Louis set aside 77 acres within Forest Park for a zoo, along with state legislation that stated that "the zoo shall be forever free". And general admission to the zoo is still free!
