Welcome to the Milwaukee County Zoo!

As part of the Zoo’s transitional reopening, for the safety of our visitors, staff and animals, the outdoor habitats are open, along with most of the animal buildings open at a limited capacity. Primates of the World and the Small Mammals building are currently closed.

Please see this article and these FAQs for complete information, including specific animal buildings, concessions and merchandise locations that are currently open.

The Zoo is a place where everyone can laugh and learn — it’s a place to be amazed and inspired — a place where nature and wonder meet!
