Behind-the-Scenes Tours

Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes at the Milwaukee County Zoo? Or want to be someone who knows the “inside scoop”? As a Platypus Circle member, you can learn and experience things like none other with an exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Tour!

Invite your family, friends, co-workers or clients to join you on a unique opportunity to learn some in-depth information about the animals and the care they receive and see some of the inner workings of the Zoo that are not accessible to the general public.
