We traveled here to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We did the giraffe experience and got to feed them. The workers were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! We also rode the train and the carousel for the extra fees. There is so much to do, it's a full day trip! Going during the week also was great because it wasn't so busy.... More

We attended the annual Zoo Ala Carte event and it was awesome. The zoo is a fabulous place to begin with but add in all the local restaurants and it's beyond amazing. The zoo is nicely laid out, has plenty of information about all the animals, many volunteers assisting with questions & hands on stuff. The Children's zoo is so... More

This was our last "outing" with the grandkids before the rush of school begins. It was a perfect cool but sunny fall day and we all had a great time. Many of the animals were outside and very active. Highlights were the penguins, the bats, the elephants, the rhino and the lions. Loved watching the elephants and the rhino being... More

I have been coming here for over 45 years. The zoo has been greatly improved since I was a kid. There are an enormous amount of things to do here from the animal exhibits to the family farm, train, carousel, restaurants, etc. The array of animals is wonderful and the signage is very informative. The landscaping makes whatever is around... More

A city I travel to every year, and the Zoo is must visit! Even though my kids and me have been so often, and they are quite grown up now, they yet love to visit the Milwaukee Zoo. They love seeing all the animal attractions, the safari train ride and especially the rope courses and zip line.

We visited the MKE county Zoo yesterday and it was a fun experience. Kids will love the place as usual. We have been to St. Louis Zoo, and comparing to that it's not even one-third of that zoo. The zoo has very limited number of animals. We were expecting to see some colorful bugs but the bugs section was closed... More

I've been here dozens and dozens of times, every time is amazing!!! There is so much to see and do, free playgrounds and activities for the kids, a petting zoo, feeding area and even somewhere that you can learn to milk a cow. It doesn't matter if it is adults only, teenagers, or small children, there are activities for everyone... More

Our hotel, the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, gave us coupons for half off the entry fee for each of us. No discount on parking. The zoo is great. It was quite windy and chilly unexpectedly the day we went, so much so that I bought a hoodie in the gift shop. I found the gift shop prices to be very... More
