If you haven't been to the Oklahoma City Zoo lately, you don't know what you're missing. So let me tell you... With all of the recent developments and additions, from the Oklahoma Trails in 2007 to the more recent giraffe feeding platform and new elephant habitat, its status as one of the top zoos in the country continues to grow. And now, the metro attraction has added the country's first zoo museum.
Named the Patricia and Byron J. Gambulos ZooZeum after the exhibit's primary benefactor, the museum includes displays and galleries that tell the story of the zoo's 100-year history, both past and present, through artifacts, photos and video. It is located in a building next to the new Elephant Pavilion that was originally a bathhouse but has been extensively renovated, and entry to the ZooZeum is free with zoo admission.
