Father’s Day at the Zoo
Sunday, June 16, 2019, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Dads get free admission, courtesy of Prairie Farms Dairy (no coupon necessary). Parking fee still applies. Zoo Pass members get free Zoo admission with photo ID.
Lions are considered great dads. They may sit back while the females go out to hunt, but they protect the pride and will fight to save their family. Golden lion tamarins are also top-notch fathers. They tenderly carry their babies on their backs 24/7, only handing them off to Mom when it’s nursing time. Whether your dad is a ferocious protector or a gentle provider, show him a great Father’s Day at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Dads get in free of charge – parking and concession fees still apply. Once you’re inside, visit Themba the African lion in the big cats building. Then, take a walk to the Small Mammals Building to see male golden lion tamarin, Basil.
