This zoo is great, they have a variety of animals, and lots of space so you don't feel crowded, except in some of the buildings, where it gets pretty crowded.

Day we went was crowded (due to excellent weather). We parked in nearest available spot outside park due to a 3 block wait to get inside (for pay parking).

This is a nice zoo with lots to see and do. It was a little difficult even with map to find your way around. Lots of food vendors.

The Milwaukee County Zoo has been a major part of my life. I've gone on school trips here, and have been here with family for general visits and community events. I only have great things to say about this zoo!

It was hard to enjoy the zoo animals as the enclosures they have the animals in are not very big and it makes you sad for them. Went to the afternoon Sea lion show and that was good.
