Children of all ages can get in touch with nature in the Zoo's Discovery Room and Local Tails Exhibit, where hands-on exploration by young visitors is invited. In Local Tails, kids can experience a touch pool full of marine creatures and have the opportunity to gently handle sea urchins, sea stars, sea cucumbers, and conch.
In the Discovery Room, preschoolers can enjoy music and stories at Story Time, facilitated by the Meet a Mum Association (MAMA), every Thursday from 9:30 am to 10:30 am, except on Public Holidays. The Discovery Room will be closed during July and August due to our Summer Aqua Camps. Story Time will also be discontinued during this period.
Special classes on Discovery Room themes are available for preschool through Primary 2. Themes change every few months and the theme until the end of April is "Animal Babies". The theme from the beginning of May is "The Sea Around Us" for the duration of the summer.
All children MUST be accompanied by an adult.
