The Madagascar exhibit is located in the former lion house, which forms part of an old section of the zoo called Astor Court (the historic sea lion pool is also part of Astor Court). This area contains many of the original zoo buildings designed by Heins & LaFarg, many of which are now closed.

The highlight of the Madagascar exhibit are the lemurs, which in the wild live in Madagascar and nowhere else. They’re extremely cute little creatures.
