  • Gorilla enrichmentThroughout 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 that they would
    in the wild. Some of the animals receiving items include Tigers, Elephants and Gorillas.
  • Be sure to hop aboard our Safari Train to test your skills counting the many Easter eggs hidden on the wooded and winding route.

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.
