Behind the Scenes WeekendMilwaukee County Zoo, 10001 W. Bluemound Rd.

Free Zoo admission for Zoological Society members with ID. Non-members: $11.75 adults; $8.75 ages 3-12 (2 and under, free); and $10.25 ages 60 and over. Milwaukee County parking fee: $12. Call 414-256-5466 for information.

When you visit the Milwaukee County Zoo, you’re seeing only a fraction of what’s going on. Why not get a broader view and go behind the scenes? You can check out the kitchen in the Small Mammals Building to see the different foods the animals eat and how meals are prepared. In the basement of the Aquatic & Reptile Center (ARC), you can see how thousands of gallons of aquarium water is maintained. Then visit the tortoises in their winter digs in the ARC. Go behind the lion dens in the big cats building and visit Winter Quarters where the warm-weather animals stay during the cold months—and more!
