Have a fun time at this beloved family-friendly attraction in Washington, D.C.

Everyone can visit the Smithsonian National Zoological Park year-round. It is free to the public and is open daily from 8 am to 4 pm. The zookeepers take care of over 200 animal species within the park. Several of the exhibits feature endangered species such as the alligator lizard, Asian elephant, Fiji banded iguana, golden lion tamarin, long-tailed chinchilla, red-crowned crane, and red panda. 

This zoo has been open since 1891 and was established largely through the efforts of William Temple Hornaday. Many researchers and conservationists who work here strive to save endangered species and their habitats. Visitors are encouraged to look at the exhibits to learn more about the wildlife creatures. Explore the American trail, Asia trail, elephant trails, reptile discovery center, small mammal house, and more at this zoological park. People of all ages can enjoy their time here. It is a great family-friendly attraction in Washington, D.C.
