The Honolulu Zoo Entrance Building is situated at the busy intersection of Kalakaua, Kapahulu, and Monsarrat avenues. It is set back approximately 100 to 200 yards from this intersection, with a large lawn in front of it. The single story building has a shallow V-shaped plan, and features a shake shingled, skewed gable, butterfly roof with overhanging eaves and exposed rafter tails. The Honolulu Zoo Entrance Building is significant on the state level under criterion C, as a good example of a public building built in Honolulu during the 1960s in a modern Hawaiian style.
