The zoo is a great place to become informed about animals and their habitat. The zoo is clean and efficiently run from the parking entrance to the ticket sellers and gatekeepers. A great place to get walking exercise, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

Haven’t been to this zoo in years! Lots of new to see and do! They have added a zip line and food vendors if you don’t want to pack a lunch

I like the MKE County Zoo. BUT, I believe it is becoming too expensive to continue going to it. The problem is that the zoo is owned by the county. All monies from tix and parking go to the county...then the county cuts a budget...More

Traveled to the zoo, many day trips, with my children when they were young. It's not a cheap day, but well worth the cost for the lovely animals you see and the time spent with family. Nice, clean, and filled with great sites.
