Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium
In Arizona, they build giant domes to keep the desert out. In Nebraska, they built one to keep it in. The zoo's landmark desert dome is the largest glazed geodesic dome IN THE WORLD, and houses replicas of the Namib, Sonoran, and Red Center Deserts. The basement also features the world's largest exhibit of nocturnal animals at Kingdoms of the Night.
Outside the dome, you can visit a three-acre primate exhibit where the gorillas roam and visitors are kept confined (effectively creating the most interactive exhibit of its kind) and America's largest indoor rainforest at the Lied Jungle. This summer the zoo will also be adding African Savannah and Alaska Adventure experiences, so plan your vacation accordingly.
