Milwaukee County Zoo Reviews & Ratings
We were there off season so some of the animals were not out and vendors were not open but it was still a great zoo and the staff and volunteers were well educated on the animals and super friendly. The animals all had clean cages and plenty of food and it was obvious that they were well cared for and content. Great place for families and if we make it back to Wisconsin, we will make sure to visit.
We love the zoo! My daughter loves walking around and taking the train and we love all the exhibits. Milwaukee really does a great job making the zoo very interactive for the kids. They also have good food and their gift shop is actually decent as far as price is concerned. We love the free zoo days, but we also pay for admission as well.
Fun place. Lots of new habitats under construction, so a bit challenging to maneuver. but doable. Lots of food and beverages. Informative about the animals, their habitat and endangered status. Nice that parking and entrance fee is all in one as you drive into the large parking area. Offers several fun specialty activities in the evening, like the Harry Potter birthday party, boo at the zoo, food tasting, camping. Great place!
Nice zoo. With parking and ticket for one almost $30 for non mke co residents so take your time to enjoy everything. I also had the chicken cordon blue sandwich from one of the eateries and it was good and not too bad of a deal. Had a great time, would come back again.
For a Thursday afternoon in October, it was a nice time. There were some animals that weren’t around because of how late in the season it was. It was fun to see the Halloween decorations though and get a Halloween Mold-a-Rama. And what a surprise it was for me to see flamingos in Wisconsin!
