Bring your family to the Zoo every Tuesday evening in July and enjoy some quality family time strolling through the Zoo! Some animals are more active in the evening hours, when the temperatures have dropped. The Zoo will stay open until 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday in July.

Admission is $3 per person or free with a Sedgwick County Zoo membership all day on Tuesdays in July.

The Twilight Tuesdays event used to be when the zoo would stay open late for members to stroll the zoo and enjoy cooler evening hours. Later it became an evening event that was open to everyone at a reduced admission price.
