Visitor InformationCome explore the only combined zoo and aquarium in the Northwest. You'll see sharks and seahorses, polar bears and peacocks, walruses and wolves, all in one place!
Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is large enough to offer an awesome array of animals yet small enough for you to get really close to them. It's fun and affordable, and offers breathtaking views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains.
All animal exhibits are open today, with the exception of sea birds, sea otters, and harbor seals. Construction continues on the Rocky Shores exhibit (opening spring 2017) and Pacific Seas Aquarium (opening summer 2018).
