This was a very clean zoo, been to others not so nice. As you walk around looking at the different animals there are workers there to ask questions. Even if you have no questions they offer a little bit of information about various animals and...More

Took my granddaughter and daughter in law to the zoo last weekend. Tickets and parking cost $57, ok, but once in the zoo you had to pay extra for any attractions such as the sky chairs or the Jurassic world kids attraction. Selections for snacks...More

My great-grandson loves to go and see all the animals at the zoo. We spend half a day there and did not miss any of the exhibits. The price for parking and admittance is a bit expensive for 2 seniors, 2 adults and 1 child.

Milwaukee Zoo is your average zoo with many animals and lots of pretty vegetation. My only complaint was the poor food. Stay away from their pre-made sandwiches that are loaded with mayo/mustard spread. Also, there's not very much variety in the food choices.

we went in winter and it was gloomy day and did not get to see few animals. Zoo has look of variety of animals. Best time would be to visit during summer.

This zoo is rarely overcrowded unless you go on a hot, summer day. And who would want to go then, anyway? Go on a cool spring or autumn day. The animals are more active and entertaining, and there’s not a lot of folks there. Lot...More
