Butch’s Bedtime

Butch’s Bedtime

A Bedtime Story to Remember!

Every evening at dusk our elephant is bedded down in his specially designed heated barns, and you can be a part of the bedtime ritual. Help us bring Butch into his barns, give him bedtime snacks and medications, if necessary. The Butch’s Bedtime Package is a fun, educational and exciting way to enhance your experience at the Monterey Zoo.

Tour times are announced daily but generally happen between 4:45 and 5:15 PM, lasting 30 to 40 minutes.

We are open 7 days a week – including most holidays except: We are closed on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Children must be four years of age or older on this tour. For the health and comfort of the animals, strollers are not allowed on this tour.
