Very family friendly. Enjoy every time we go. Wish there were more animals but it's been pretty cold. Forgot map in the car so I wish it was a bit easier to navigate. I also wish there were more healthy food options. I have never had a bad experience at this zoo and I've been many many many times. I... More

The Milwaukee County Zoo offers a ton of fun and excitement for the whole family. The grounds are huge, so you have to start with laying out a plan on what to see in the timeframe you have AND considering how mobile your party is. You could easily spend the entire day there if you had the energy and money... More

I go to the zoo at least once a year. They have some of the best big cat and primate exhibits that I've seen. There is plenty to do for all ages as well. One must is the train ride that takes you through the zoo.

What used to be an innovative and state of the art zoo has gotten tired and old, One visit there were few animals even in their exhibits. The food services are lacking and the exhibits are looking small and cage-y

The Milwaukee Zoo is an exceptional zoological park. it is well laid out and offers great views of the animals. Many of the exhibits provide foreground and background animals In predator/prey type settings. While winter makes the zoo a quiet place it is a nice place for a stroll. In the rest of the seasons, families are everywhere. Parents and... More

Nice zoo. Clean. Animals seem to be happy, as happy as you can be living in an enclosure. If you like zoos, it is a nice place to spend an afternoon.

This is a great zoo that one can see most everything in a day. Favorite thing is the sea lion show, been taking my grandchildren there for years. Love getting there picture made with Slick.

I love the zoo. They have so much to do, including a great train ride for a fee. The zoo has a wonderful variety of animals.

The Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the best zoo's I have been to. They have a large array of animals as well as interactive shows going on throughout the day. There is even a ropes course for the older kids! Younger kids seem to love the train. Parking is rather expensive after paying for admission so make sure to... More
