This zoo was a nice manageable size. Easy to get around and nice view of the animals. Not the largest zoo but a really great variety of animals. Would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Milwaukee.

Very nice zoo. We took our 9 and 12 year old daughters and we had walked the whole zoo in less then 3 hrs. One thing I would not waste your money on is the train ride you see no animals.

This zoo is so nice and beautiful. However I feel bad about the elephants housing along with the big cats. There was lots to see and do.

I'm a volunteer at the zoo. We have many picnic areas and places to eat. I occasionally bring my lunch and sit on the benches by the flamingos. When on assignment I'll bring several bottles of water on a hot day. Bring... More
