Honoring Our Heroes

Free Guided Tours for Veterans

This special program was initiated by a Denver Zoo volunteer, a World War II veteran himself, to honor and support veterans and their families. These guided tours engage families of veterans in a fun-filled exploration of Denver Zoo, connecting them to the animals in our care by hearing the stories that make them amazing, beautiful and special while learning about our conservation and education work.


Any armed service veteran or active duty service member with proof of military service and their immediate family may schedule a Veteran’s Tour.

Group Size

Maximum of ten (10) people per tour, including veterans/active service members.


Veteran(s) are free (must present proof of military service at time of tour); $10 per other tour participant ($5 for membership holders)


Veteran’s Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance of the actual tour date.
