|About these ratings|
Nestled in the Shadyside neighborhood, the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium can make an entertaining afternoon for young families. Everything from the petting zoo in Kids Kingdom to the stingray tanks in the aquarium is family-friendly. One TripAdvisor user says, "All of the habitats had an information box, that if you bought a certain key from the gift shop ($2.00 when we went) you can listen to some cool info."
Another Yelp.com user warns: "Bring your hiking boots. It's built on hills that Pittsburgh's famous for, so get ready to walk up and down some hills."
The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is open daily, although hours vary depending on the season. Admission prices range from $10 to $14 per adult, depending on the time of year. For more detailed information on hours and prices, be sure to check out the website before you visit.
