The Philadelphia Zoo, located in the Centennial District of Philadelphia, on the west bank of the Schuylkill River, was the first true zoo in the United States. It was chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on March 21, 1859, but its opening was delayed by the Civil War until July 1, 1874. The zoo opened with 1,000 animals and an admission price of 25 cents. For a brief time, the zoo also housed animals brought over from safari on behalf of the Smithsonian Institution, which had not yet built the National Zoo.

They only had a couple of the cats out. The ones that were out were hard to see because of the way the enclosures are.
Amazing Exhibit with one of a kind Big Cat Crossing where cats can be and walk above you.
If you like the big cats, this is the place!
