Agree with several of the prior reviews of this. Very nice displays along with informative data with them. Does entail lots of walking. Train ride nice but not narrated. Check its website for charges as $12 parking fee does seem high. Sea lion/seal show only 20 mins and a lot of the stunts are repeated. Only 3 animals were in the show we saw. Some extra fee activities for children such as face painting, carousel with various animals, confidence course. All in all a very nice zoo. Recommend a visit if you're in the area.

We live near by and hold a family membership. We LOVE this zoo. It's small but well worth the trip. Great volunteers, clean, well kept animals. We've been to several zoos and milwaukee ranks up there. We only wish it was larger.

On a sunny day we decided to stop at the zoo. Little did we know so did all the local schools for the end of the school year. The zoo is so large that this did not seem to be a problem. This zoo is well spread out with many different animals. The only thing I did not care for that some of the exhibits you had to pay extra for so I felt 'nickeled and dimed" by the end of the day. Overall, I would say put this on your list of things to do in Milwaukee!
