Good Zoo & Benedum Theater

Over 50 species of animals many rare or endangered, reside within the 30-acre Good Zoo. The zoo was dedicated in memory of seven-year old Philip Mayer Good in 1977 and continues to thrive through the support of local residents. Our mission is to educate our visitors regarding natural and physical sciences and to promote conservation.

Our newest addition is the dinosaur exhibit. This display of lifelike dinosaurs has all new creatures including a stegosaurus, edmontonia, suchomimus, amargasaurus and her baby and others! Click here for more information about the dinosaurs.

Other newer exhibits include the Outback Exhibit and Lorikeet Landing. Oadditional features include the African wild dogs, meerkats, spectacled bears, lemurs, ocelot, red pandas, river otters and the Wonders of the Wetlands area where visitors can observe a crane, bald eagles and various other plants and animals that call these fragile areas home.

The historic C.P. Huntington Train Ride takes visitors on a one and a half mile journey through the zoo. The red barn is filled with friendly domestic animals such as llamas, pigs, goats and donkeys.

Indoor exhibits include the hands-on Discovery Lab, where you’ll observe small animals including poison dart frogs, tamarin monkeys and salamanders. The Benedum Theater features a variety of programs about nature and the universe as well as exciting laser shows. The zoo also houses West Virginia’s largest 0-gauge model train display.

The zoo offers a variety of camps and programs for children of all ages as well as outreach programs with area schools and groups. There are also programs for adults including the West Virginia Master Naturalist program.

There is something for everyone at the Good Zoo. We hope you enjoy your visit!
