“walk through a polar bear tunnel!”

Journey to a coastal fishing village where man and nature live in harmony, complete with two enormous underwater viewing tunnels and indoor and outdoor viewing windows, offering unparalleled views of animals who live where land and water meet.

Study ocean habitats and the animals that call them home. We will examine the threats facing today's ocean habitats and come up with solutions to these problems. Participants will meet an aquarist that will provide them with a behind-the-scenes look at some of the PPG Aquarium's most famous residents.

Included in the Ocean Exploration Overnight: -Live animal visit
-Late night pizza snack
-Behind-the-scenes tour of the PPG Aquarium
-Nighttime scavenger hunt in PPG Aquarium
-Craft - pillowcase souvenir
-Sleep in the Education Complex (you will not be sleeping in the PPG Aquarium)

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is home to thousands of amazing animals representing more than four hundred species, including 22 threatened or endangered species. Click on Look Up an Animal to find out more about your favorite Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium residents. Find out where penguins live, what a naked mole rat likes to eat, or how the spectacled bear got its name. Then come to the Zoo to see your favorite animal up close! Plus, see our special pages devoted to animals involved in Conservation and research projects.

Planet Earth’s Diversity of Water is on full display, featuring an array of aquatic species from every conceivable watery habitat—from the bountiful Amazon River, to icy Antarctica, to freshwater Pennsylvania streams and rivers, to the warm and exotic oceans of the tropics.

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium strives to foster positive, lifelong connections between animals and people. Whether through our exhibitry, educational programs, or our many conservation projects, our goal is to make certain the Earth remains a suitable home for all life by our discovery of the interconnectedness of the natural world.

Nice zoo. I like going when it rains. Less people and some of the animals enjoy the rain. There are really great vantage points for photos in the giraffe and gorilla areas. Staff were super friendly and welcoming too.
