Zoo Gift Shops

Visit the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium's four premiere gift shops. Each shop carries an attractive selection of interesting and educational items with a wildlife and environmental theme. While on safari, be sure to stop at every location since most items are unique to each shop. A portion of the profits from the sales in our gift shops are used by the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium to help support its mission of education and conservation.
