During January and February, Knoxville Zoo invites visitors to join them in their cozy log cabin for StoryTime at the Zoo.  Held each Wednesday and Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m., StoryTime features lively animal tales and visits from some of the zoo’s animal ambassadors.


StoryTime at the Zoo is an engaging activity for toddlers and preschoolers.  Each StoryTime is approximately 45 minutes in length and is included as part of general zoo admission.  Now through February, Knoxville Zoo is also celebrating Penguin Discount Days by offering visitors half-price admission.
