Knoxville Zoo becomes the coolest
place in Knoxville to visit during Penguin Discount Days!
Now through Feb. 28, 2013, admission to Knoxville Zoo is
Don't worry, black tie isn't required; just put on a warm
jacket, a pair of mittens, and come see why winter is a great
time to visit the zoo. Many of the zoo's animals enjoy the
crisp weather and are more active on cooler days. The zoo's favorite indoor exhibit, Wee Play Zoo, is a cozy
place to stop and play if you do happen to get a little chilly. On days when the temperature drops below 40
degrees, some animals will be moved to their indoor enclosures, but even on the coldest days of the year visitors
can still see elephants, gorillas, penguins, reptiles, chimpanzees and bears in their indoor viewing areas.
Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket office during regular zoo hours and online at
www.knoxvillezoo.org. Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2013, and cannot be combined
with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.
