The MKE zoo is a great place to take the family. There is a zoo train and many shows to watch. The dinosaur area is always a hit. Get the family pass to save $$$.
I've been to a number of zoos, including San Diego, Denver, Toronto, Washington DC, and New Orleans, and I think that Milwaukee compares very favorably to all of them. Milwaukee is special in a number of ways, including being a breeding zoo for endangered species. You won't see many cages here - most exhibits are open environments that are meant... More
We have the Zoo pass, Had this for 6 years now, we have a 6 year old, She love the zoo classes, Little on the expensive side some times but most of the time you get a lot of the class, she take 3-4 a year in the summer, they make a great Christmas gift, did the sea lion class... More
I have been to the San Diego and Beijing (sp?) zoos and while ours is not as big, it is very worthwhile seeing. The exhibits are close up and fun even in winter. You can see the polar bears diving down into the water through a glass exhibit. Do the zoo and the Museum and Art Museum and you can... More
One of the things that make Milwaukee such a great place to raise a family. Family pass is a real steal in that you can go as many times in the year as you would like. Miles of walking and animals to view in somewhat natural habitats. The sights, the smells!
Zoo Ala Carte is every August and is a lot of fun. Local restaurants set up booths and people can purchase food from some or all of them! It's fun for kids and adults. The zoo has bands playing throughout the days and each night their is a main show keeping the zoo open later than normal. The zoo is... More
This place quite nice for a zoo...it is relatively well kept, always has activties going on, and the animals look healthy and happy. My favorite experiences have always been the girrafe feeding and sting ray exhibit, but they have many other fun exhibits as well. It can get crowded and hot pretty fast, so keep a water bottle with you.... More
This was a nice zoo with great activities in the summer. We saw the Family Stone perform and it was awesome with 3 original member. It is great for walking and viewing. Not as great as the Colorado Springs Zoo we visited but amazing concert series in the summer.
We went out of season and it was not very people populated but the animals were cool. They have so many exhibits that are so close to the animals. The elephants gave us a chance to see them in action and everyone enjoyed them. Not able to really due the whole zoo but plan to go back when everything is... More
We must have gone on a not so busy day. It seemed like we had the place to ourselves. It was awesome! We were trying to decide if we wanted to pay extra money to participate in the Giraffe Experience. After talking with the cashier at the gift shop, due to not having another adult with me, we purchased two... More
