EWW, GROSS!

Burps, warts, runny noses and smelly, achy body functions are brought to light in the exhibit "Grossology." Interactive play stations take you through indigestion, scaling a wall of pimples and pretend surgery to remove organs. Nigel Nose-It-All teaches guests what causes a runny nose.

TROPICAL BEACH PARTY

Don't just imagine you're in a tropical climate, head to one! The humid Tropics Trail at the Minnesota Zoo will transport visitors to Caribbean-like conditions with a large indoor sandbox and calypso music. Learn about recycling and attend zookeeper talks. Meet Snoopy, have your face painted and dig into art activities.
