Behind the Scenes Weekend

Prairie Farms Dairy

March 14 & 15, 2020, tours 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Exercising extra caution amid COVID-19 concerns, the Milwaukee County Zoo has decided to postpone its Behind the Scenes Weekend event scheduled for this weekend, March 14 and 15. We have not yet determined a new date but hope to host the event on a weekend later in the year. Thank you for your understanding. The Zoo remains open.

Behind the Scenes Weekend

This two-day event is your time to see what goes on behind closed doors. Experience where the animals go when they aren’t on exhibit, where the keepers prepare the animals’ meals or where the train goes for the winter and for repairs. Multiple tours around the Zoo are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tours are included with the price of admission. Zoo Pass members get free admission with their Zoo Pass and valid ID.
