Join in on the Fun!
There are incredible things to do at the Milwaukee County Zoo! From attractions to events to food to fun, there’s something for everyone. At the Zoological Society of Milwaukee, we’re lucky to work closely with the Zoo and can help you with your visit and experience!
Visit the Zoo
At the Milwaukee County Zoo, you can see more than 2,100 animals, representing 354 species, across 190 acres! Visit Adventure Africa, the brand-new home for elephants, hippos, and African hoofstock, or take a break indoors in one of several buildings, including the Aquatic & Reptile Center, Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country, or Stearns Family Apes of Africa and Primates of the World.
In addition to observing majestic animals, the Zoo offers rides and attractions! During summer months, you may be able to feed a goat or a giraffe. You can learn about animals and their behaviors during Animals in Action talks. Or, take a trip on the train that goes around the Zoo. Extra costs may apply.
Enjoy Our Incredible Events
There are so many incredible events at the Milwaukee County Zoo. The Zoological Society holds fundraising events like our black-tie Zoo Ball and our exciting Ride on the Wild Side. We also offer free member events like Kids Nights.
The Milwaukee County Zoo also hosts fundraisers, such as Boo at the Zoo and Wild Lights. There are even public events that are included with admission, such as Egg Day and World Elephant Day.
We even offer occasional travel opportunities, including two off-site day trips per year for Zoological Society members with ZSM staff.

Check-in with Our Animal Web Cams
The Zoological Society has installed a series of webcams in many habitats so you can check in on your favorites. Check out several of the Zoo’s animals, including jaguars, penguins, and fish! People tune in from all over the country to watch the animals. Our webcams were partially funded by donations to a Society Annual Appeal and are maintained by the Society’s team.
