Aquatic & Reptile Center

Get the inside look and be in the room where it happens. This is your chance to get a behind-the-scenes view of the Milwaukee County Zoo. On March 10 and 11, you'll see what is usually unseen by visitors. One stop includes Winter Quarters where the warm-weather animals stay during the winter months. Another popular stop is the train shop. When the train isn't giving kids and adults a trip around the Zoo, it's stationed in a building where you can get a better glimpse. Other areas will be open for tours including the Aquatic & Reptile Center and greenhouse. You'll never see the Zoo the same way. Tours are included with admission.
