Join us for these fun-filled Friday nights!
Thanks to TXU Energy, the Houston Zoo is once again staying open late until 8:30 p.m., last entry in at 7:30 p.m., so you can enjoy the animals in the cooler evening weather. Join us for Cool Nights every Friday evening from June 26 through August 21. From 5 to 8 p.m. guests can enjoy added music and kid-friendly activities that are sure to entertain kids and adults alike! All activities are included in Zoo admission and are free for Zoo Members.
