Welcome to the NEW Bat Zone!
About the Bat Zone
Once located at the Cranbrook Institute for Science, the Bat Zone has expanded and moved to its new home in Pontiac, Michigan! The Bat Zone remains Michigan’s premier nocturnal animal sanctuary and the headquarters for our national operations. We are home to more than 250 animals, all of whom have been either rescued or captive born. None of the animals that we care for can be released into the wild, and many are in need of specialized care. For a general admission price of $7 (free under the age of 2), you’ll get to see these animals up close!
Bat Zone Tours
Take a personal tour with a trained education specialist to experience bats from around the world, a two-toed sloth, and skunks. Visit with the largest species of bat in the world and even meet a colony of Vampire bats! Learn fun facts you never knew and ways you can take action to help #SavetheBats! Tickets are $7.00 per person and free for patrons under two years old. All visitors will be guided by an educator for the duration of the tour.
