Visit Milwaukee


Get up close and personal with the residents of the Milwaukee County Zoo.

Where better to take the family for an unforgettable visit than the nationally-recognized Milwaukee County Zoo? More than 2,500 animals representing 330 species, from bonobos to polar bears, and big cats to giraffes, are housed on 200 acres of natural habitats.

In addition to visiting the animals, the Zoo is filled with activities that families will love. See educational wildlife shows like the Birds of Prey Show and the Oceans of Fun Seal & Sea Lion Show and check the animal feeding schedule to see your favorite beast dine (giraffes and goats can be fed by guests). Kids love to ride the zoo train that circles the grounds, and the new Sky Trail® Wisconsin Adventure Zone challenges all ages to try out the 500-foot zip line, climbing wall and ropes course.

Open 365 days a year, the Zoo is one of the Milwaukee area’s favorite attractions. Whether you visit to attend a special event or for everyday exploration, the Zoo is a great spot for families to learn and discover – come get in touch with your wild side!
