Milwaukee County Zoo, Milwaukee Reviews

  • Recently moved to Milwaukee and bought a family pass for the zoo. We love it because it's not too far away and can pop in anytime for a few hours with our five kids. Split the price of the pass with my mom who also lives in Milwaukee to keep cost down and now either of us can take the kids! Animals look good and even in March the bigger animals were out and about. Not too crowded, even on family free day. Would recommend a stroller though if you have toddlers or babies it's a fair amount of walking. Looking forward to returning in the summer months.

  • Probably the best zoo that I have been to. Easy drive, easy parking and easy to walk around. They have great exhibits and when I was there with the kids all the animals were out so that made it even better. I would highly recommend going there if you haven't, you will have so much fun and make a day out of it. We as a family stay in downtown Milwaukee a couple times a year just to get away, makes for a really fun weekend.

  • Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! I love our zoo. There are so many animals to see, and the playground in the family farm area is amazing. You can feed giraffes and goats, ride the train, or watch raptor or sea lion shows or cows being milked. There are lots of options for food. (Not all of these things are open in the winter). They also provide a couple of private places for nursing/pumping. We have a membership, which pays for itself after about two visits, so we can come for a couple of hours at a time - which is great, because it's a big zoo. We have a 6-year-old and 19-month-old, so a shorter visit is nice. Four stars because the interactive displays don't always work, and seem to go a long time without getting fixed. I'd prefer to give four-and-a-half.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE it here. The stands can be a little pricey and the food is ok which is why only 4 stars. But we absolutely love the animals and the expansions they are making. They best deal that is offered is the year pass with parking. Well worth the price if you can swing it!

  • Not many animals out yet and no children's rides available. Expected more for the nice day we had. Hope to go again to see animals and enjoy the day. Kinda felt we won't go in Feb again or early March because of lack of animals seen. Have to go in summer. We have a season pass and not sure I'd do that next year since I really was disappointed today. Elephants were nice to see. My sister also said she heard there was so much construction going on that she may not renew this year.
