A lot of things close on Easter Sunday, so if you are heading out, it is a good idea to call ahead. However, you are not stuck at home. There are several family-friendly things to do. Whether you are entertaining and want to show your guests around town, or it’s just your family on Sunday, there is probably something for you. Here is a list of things we’ve found that — according to their websites — are open on Easter Sunday.

Both Zoos are open.
|Age||Zoo Only||Zoo + IMAX|

|3 – 12 yrs. old||$12.00||$18.50*|

Como Zoo is always free. This is a regular day for Como with all the usual Sunday activities. It is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. I’ve gone on Easter, and it is very busy. The shuttles are not running yet, so you will want to come early or expect to spend some time finding parking and walking from the lot to the zoo.
