Hours & Directions
MMCC LA is OPEN to the public every day of the year during daylight hours. Come see patients currently in our care from the fence line.
Animal viewing and Parking — ALWAYS FREE
Visitors are not permitted “behind the scenes” and are kept a safe distance from the animals. This helps to provide a low stress environment during the patients’ rehabilitation, as well as to enable their natural wild behavior.
Educational staff and volunteers are generally available between 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m on Saturday and Sunday. We welcome questions about our facility and the species that are treated at MMCC LA.
VISITORS CENTER & GIFT SHOP
Our new visitors center and upgraded gift shop is open 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday and 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m on Saturday and Sunday. Visit our list of gift shop items to check out our top-sellers!
