I decided to take my 8 yr old niece to the Zoo, on one of their free days. (only have to pay the $12.00 parking fee). We bundled up and off we went. First were the penguins. They love this kind of weather. Then we went inside to see the gorillas, and monkeys. It was nice and warm in there.... More

Such a wonderfully relaxing zoo. Lots to see...we love going in the winter to get some exercise and warm up in the many animal buildings on the property. Restaurant on site is cafeteria style, but will do. The train ride is worth the money!

I have grown up going to this zoo and it never gets old! I always look forward to the different things and exhibits that are added. Even though my husband and I do not have kids, we make this a mandatory stop at least once a year!

Beautiful grounds and so very clean. There are plenty of animal exhibits and it was such a lovely day that the animals were visible and active.

We love going to this zoo. The animals seem to be well taken care of and fed. There are plenty of animals to cover many different interests. Always fun to see what babies have been born to the zoo recently. Nice walking areas exhibits. Well maintained public areas.

One my favorite places to visit in Milwaukee. Always try to make it here at least once a month, and it still has yet to get old. Would like for them to expand and do extra experiences like many other zoos do such as animal encounters however.

This is the second year I have purchased a zoo pass for my family and I. The value is exceptional! The zoo has so many events year long and it really is not crowded! I love that you can bring in your own food.

My kids and I have enjoyed the zoo for many years. Getting a family membership saves money and has some nice perks as well. Strongly recommended.

What a special place for this walk. This a wonderful Zoo and it is great for children of all ages. I watched my grandchildren move from exhibit to exhibit with eyes as wide as saucers. Each one favorites and in multiples. They had so much fun that my wife signed them up for various classes held over the school year.... More
