Daytime Admission (Timed Entry)


The Academy is reopening on March 17. Welcome back!

Our top priority is the health and safety of our staff, guests, animals, and community. All guests must reserve timed-entry tickets in advance as walkup admission is not available. Here's how to reserve your tickets:

• Select a visit date and entry time below. You may reserve your tickets up to 3 weeks in advance.
• After completing your order, you will receive 2 emails: A receipt, and your PDF tickets. On the day of your visit, please have your PDF tickets ready for self-scanning, either on your smartphone (brightness all the way up!) or printed out. Guests will scan their own tickets at the door to minimize face-to-face interaction with staff.

For complete health and safety information, exhibit updates, and FAQs, please visit Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
