With everything that we've been through over the last couple months, the best thing we could hear these days is, "we are going back to normal..." even if it is simply operating hours.

The Buffalo Zoo has announced that they will be returning to normal business hours starting on Wednesday September 9th.

While they admit, we aren't out of the woods yet, they thought now might be the best time to return to normal hours.

“While there are still many hurdles to overcome, we are happy to return back to normal
operating hours at the Buffalo Zoo.  Our peak season is coming to a close, so it made sense to return to our normal hours of operation.” Buffalo Zoo President and CEO Norah Fletchall.

As of right now, these are the hours available:

Member Mornings - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9:00 a.m to 11:30 a.m. General Admission - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. Guests may remain on grounds until 5:00 p.m. - Every Tuesday - The Zoo is closed for cleaning and disinfection.

Starting Wednesday, the zoo will be open from 10am-4pm, but guests can stay until 5pm.
