In 2009 it was exactly 150 years ago that Artis opened its doors; it has, of course, changed considerably since then. However, the winding paths, majestic trees and the monumental historical buildings still give Artis a special, 19th century atmosphere. There are more than 8000 animals in the zoo, as well as two museums – the Zoological Museum and the Geological Museum – a very sophisticated Planetarium and a magnificent, recently renewed Aquarium. The new restaurant ‘de twee cheetahs’ overlooks the African Savannah. Is open every day from 9am to 5pm.
