The zoo is the perfect size. So many animals that the kids enjoy. They also have a great train that takes you on a ride around the zoo. Food/snacks are reasonably priced but you can also carry in. The zoo is clean and does not smell at all.

This zoo rocks! I live in Atlanta, and the zoo there pales in comparison to Milwaukee! I come to the zoo every year for the past decade and never get tired of the reptiles, bears, primates, elephants, giraffes and so many more.

Any zoo is wonderful so it is hard to give bad marks! I always heard the Milwaukee zoo is one of the best so we had to go to it when we went up for a long weekend. If you have kids I am sure they will like it. It was nice, but I think I imagined it being bigger. I animal habitates are natural and very nice. The food is your typical overpriced zoo food. Stop and have lunch before or after.

We went here on the 4th of July for a daily special and had a lot of fun. Many shady spots to sit if it gets too hot. There are some new baby jaguars which were fun to watch. The gorillas were also moving around so that was cool too. The zoo is clean and spacious.
