Place is pretty nice. The train ride is really great. Don’t really recommend renting the strollers because honestly they suck just buy your own for $10 from a store.

This is one of the best zoos in the country. Don't miss this whether you're a local resident or visiting.

Attended during alacarte. Bea samples of foods from around the area. In a perfect setting of the Milwaukee county zoo. Walks around watch the animals, people watch listen to music, and sample all the foods. Best of all walking off all the calaries you ate....More

This zoo is big and has tons of different animals and exhibits. Although some of the animals are a hit and miss.

The zoo was fantastic. The animals all looked healthy and happy. The parking was very expensive and the support staff was less than friendly.

Really like the zoo. It is very nice. But this is the most expensive zoo I've ever been to. Just have to reduce the cost, and it would be five stars.

The only reason for 4 stars is because of the age of exhibits.. But then again what zoo is new ? A very pleasant atmosphere.

Awesome place in Milwaukee to take your young kiddos. Membership for sure worth it. We have gone several times this year. Also, excited that they are raising money and building a new habitat for the elephants. They need it! Great staff - worth a visit!
