Storybook Hill Children’s Zoo was established in 1976, in partnership with the Optimists Clubs of Dubuque, as an effort to increase the knowledge and understanding of common animals among the people of Dubuque. The zoo is a replica of an American farm from the 1940’s, and contains a wide variety of animals that a person visiting this time period might see on an actual farm.

The zoo is a place where people can plan an unforgettable birthday party, reunion, or just a small family picnic. We know our family of feathered and four-legged friends will delight in your presence and be there to bring a smile to your child’s face as well.
