A new way to look at endangered species at The Philadelphia Zoo

 The Philadelphia Zoo invites guests to visit some new additions to their family this season! In their exclusive Creatures Of Habitat Lego Brick Animal Exhibit you can visit a world featuring life-size LEGO animals! Creatures of Habitat: A Gazillion-Piece Animal Adventure is the first and only conservation exhibition of its kind and it's in our own backyard!

Ten free-standing habitats each tell the story of endangered or threatened species from around the world with amazing life-size LEGO animals created by renowned LEGO certified professional, Sean Kenney. Kenney is one of only nine LEGO certified professional artisans in the world! He will also be at the Allentown Art Museum on Sunday, May 16th from 1-3 p.m for a special 'block party'! For this particular exhibit at The Philadelphia Zoo, he and his crew crafted more than 30 life-size animal sculptures from hundreds of thousands of tiny LEGO bricks. The species represented range from a 500 pound polar bear to a golden lion tamarin which usually weighs less than 1 pound.

The exhibit runs now through October 31st. The Philadelphia Zoo is open daily from  9:30AM-5:00PM. General Admission is $18.00 for adults, $15.00 for children ages 2-11, and free for children under 2. Parking is $12.00 per vehicle. The zoo is located at the corner of 34th Street and Girard Avenue in Philadelphia's historic Fairmount Park; just two miles from downtown Philadelphia and easily accessible by car from the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76).
