The NEW (Northeast Wisconsin) Zoo is a great place for a family outing at a reasonable price. You'll see many of your favorite animals - most in natural settings. Like to get up close and personal with a giraffe? You can while you feed them!

Any day you can feed a giraffe is a good day! This is an open zoo with lots to see and really great for little kids to the older ones. It's just long enough to not be overwhelming and now this year a zip line was added. It's a beautiful ride to the rural Green Bay area to see the... More

The N.E.W. Zoo is a little off the beaten path, but is a nice size for all ages. The animals are closer than most zoos. The zoo is in the second stage of development, with a lot of room for future expansion. This is a good 1/2 day trip if you are around the Green Bay area. There is also... More

The New Zoo is a bit off the beaten track but so worth the trip. We were visiting relatives in the area and met them there with our families. The zoo is beautifully landscaped and feels more like a natural habitat for the animals, such as the River Otter habitat. It's really a pleasant outing.

My review is mostly about the Zoo Boo event. We took our 3 and 6 year old boys to Zoo Boo on the first Friday afternoon/evening of the event. We got there a little after it started at 3 which was great because it wasn't busy yet. They had a local firetruck there before you got into the zoo. We... More

Our group got a brief tour which provided some information you would not have known. The place looked a little worn but the staff were busy decorating it for Halloween. Sometimes you wonder how many captive animals they are if you take all these type of places in the world and add them up.

Having been to the zoo as a child, I had some really good memories. My husband and decided to bring our children last weekend despite it being pretty chilly. We had a GREAT time! The zoo was decorated a bit for Halloween, but not with anything too scary for my youngest. This is a smaller zoo but that just meant... More

This is a nice little zoo. It actually isn't that little but it's great if you don't want to do tons of walking and if you have little kids. Very nice variety and you can feed the giraffes at certain times for a small fee. We haven't been there in years and it is just a really nice place to... More

We went to the New Zoo on a Wednesday late morning and it was pleasantly quiet. We had the opportunity to feed the giraffes and walk around the entire zoo including a trail in the park across the road. Everyone was very pleasant, informative, and the zoo and trail were super clean and well kept. I would definitely venture back... More

The best way to sum up the NEW zoo is you pay for what you get. The admission is very affordable, $7 per adult compared to other zoos I have been to which it is $20+. Compared to the bigger zoo's like Miami or Como in MSP it feels small. But again, you get what you pay for. We paid... More
