Did you know that the Trevor Zoo is one-of-a-kind?
It is, in fact, the only zoo in this country that is located at a high school. The zoo was established in 1936 at Millbrook School, a coeducational independent high school in Millbrook, New York. Its founder, Frank Trevor, was Millbrook School’s first biology teacher and a man with a passion for sharing his love of wildlife with all people, especially children.

And there are plenty of other interesting facts about the Trevor Zoo:
  • It houses more than 180 exotic and indigenous animals
  • 80 different species are represented
  • It is home to 8 endangered species
  • Its facilities extended over 6 acres
  • It operates a veterinary clinic
  • It is one of 232 zoos in the U.S. accredited by the AZA (Associations of Zoos and Aquariums)

Hours and Admission Fees


After reviewing all available information, weighing the value of being open to our visitors, and the support we can provide to our federal, state, and local government agencies to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to close the zoo to the public for an undetermined period of time. Our goal is to re-open as soon as possible.  
All zoo events and scheduled visits have been postponed. Full refunds will be issued for Birthday Party deposits, and we will contact you via phone to process those or reschedule your party for a future date.
Our staff remains healthy and will be doing their usual Herculean work to provide the animals with the best possible care.
Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for status updates and visit www.millbrook.org/trevorzoolive to watch our live camera feeds.


The staff and students welcome all visitors to enjoy the zoo and advance its educational mission.
