Philadelphia Zoo

Interpretive Signage

The Philadelphia Zoo was granted its charter in 1859 and is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its charter in 2009. To celebrate the history of the Philadelphia Zoo, MERJE worked with the Zoo’s development office, curators, and design department to create an interpretive exhibit celebrating its accomplishments and milestones. The exhibit provides a “face” to each of the Zoo’s achievements, whether it be recording keeping, animal care, education, or the visitors themselves. It also includes a Zoovenir wall that provides visitors an opportunity to contribute their personal memories of the Zoo by adding photographs to the exhibit.
