    You have to check out the baby jaguars & the fennec fox kits! Too adorable for words. The indoor exhibits can be pretty crowded- especially on free days. But it's worth it not to have to pay!

    Getting a membership here is one of the best decisions we've made since moving to Milwaukee a year ago. It practically pays for itself. Excellent, beautiful zoo!

    great zoo but unless you have kids who want to ride a train take the tram tour instead. Its an awesome guided tour. The train just goes around the perimeter of the zoo. Not worth the $2.

    Don't be afraid to visit the zoo in the winter...{preferably nonwindy} day. You'll have the zoo practically to yourself. It's so pretty when it's snowy & the indoor buildings are heated. Score!

    Love to see the elephants and penguins. Good place to get some exercise... good walk. Don't forget to ride the train before you leave!

    Take a ride on the scale replica steam engine train. It's a fun way to see the zoo. Make sure to wave to the bystanders!

    A great place to visit but make sure you are ready to pay - without advance tickets adults were $13.25, kids $10.25 and I think it was $11 to park (we had free tickets for an event)

    Thursday's at 10am they feed the snakes in the reptile building. It's really neat but not for the weak stomach.
