Kansas City Zoo is open today! 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays; 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends.
Check out our Wings of Wonder (WOW) show and meet our resident peregrine falcon, Eli. Peregrine falcons are a real success story. They were critically endangered in the wild but thanks to a breeding program and reintroduction into the wild, their numbers have dramatically increased. Eli lived in the wild until he was injured by a car. His injuries made him unable to fly and hunt for his own food. The Zoo provided the professional care he needed and now he is part of the WOW show. Show times are 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily with an additional show at 12:30 p.m. on weekends.
