Following renovations that began in June 2017, the ProMedica Museum of Natural History at the Toledo Zoo opened in May. The museum, comprised of two levels, contains links showing how animals and conservation are connected throughout time. One exhibit includes an interactive nature walk through ecosystems surrounding the Great Lakes. The Mazza Gallery contains art from children’s books that are zoo and animal-themed. Science is brought to life in the museum’s collections of fossils, bones and other interactive artifacts. The new museum also features a rental facility that is available for parties and weddings of up to 200 people.
