We love this zoo! Great place to walk and see the animals. There are lots of shade trees which is very nice on a hot day. We enjoyed a Oceans of Fun show also for a few dollars more.

Took my 8 year old Granddaughter who had a ton of fun. It is a compact zoo so it is easy to get around for us old folks. Great viewing spots to really feel like you are there. Worth a trip.

The Milwaukee County Zoo is really great! We have a zoo pass and love going several times a year. There is a good amount of animals to look at. It does get a little crowded but it is a big zoo so it isn't usually...More
