Sponsored by Prairie Farms Dairy
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go above the huge Lake Wisconsin Exhibit in the Aquatic & Reptile Center at the Milwaukee County Zoo? During the Zoo’s Behind the Scenes Weekend, sponsored by Prairie Farms Dairy, Saturday, March 14, and Sunday, March 15, visitors will be able to do just that, plus a whole lot more!
From 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. both days, the Milwaukee County Zoo will provide tours of many Zoo locations not normally open to the public. Behind the Scenes Weekend is designed to give visitors a new perspective and appreciation of the work that takes place “behind closed doors” at the Zoo. Our Zoo Pride volunteers will serve as your tour guides for the day, and they’re happy to answer visitor questions. All tours are free with regular Zoo admission, and highlights will include:
Due to the nature of some tours, several locations are not handicapped accessible.
All tours are conducted on a first come, first serve basis. Admission for adults is $11.75, $8.75 for juniors (ages 3-12), $10.25 for seniors (age 60 and over); Parking is $12. Milwaukee County residents with proper identification receive $1.75 off regular Zoo admission.
