  • Throughout the Zoo
    Be on the lookout for our animals to take part in Easter festivities, as they receive special
    Easter-related enrichment items in their habitats. Enrichment activities keep the
    animals active and healthy, allowing them to demonstrate behaviors similar to those they would in the wild. Among the animals receiving these special treats are jaguars, wolves and orangutans.
  • All Aboard for a “Train Teaser!”
    Hop on our North Shore Bank Safari Train to test your skills counting Easter eggs hidden on the wooded and winding route around the Zoo.

Zoo admission is $14.25 for adults, $11.25 for children (3 to 12 years), free for children 2 and under, and $13.25 for senior citizens (60 and older). Milwaukee County residents with I.D. receive $1.75 off regular Zoo admission. Parking is $12. Zoological membership is valid.
