Located in the zoo’s oldest building, the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery has been completely restored and reconfigured.
The original building was designed by the architect William H. Creaser. The Gallery features large Pewabic tile peacocks at the entrance and exit. The Wildlife Interpretive Gallery is a multidisciplinary, 10,000 square foot facility designed to interpret wildlife using video, multi-media computers, interactive displays, art and nature. Nothing like it exists in other zoos - and it is designed to help visitors experience, understand, enjoy and celebrate wildlife. The Wildlife Interpretive Gallery also is home to Science On a Sphere, the Matilda Wilson Free - Flight Aviary and the world renown Butterfly Garden.
