Sponsored by North Shore Bank and FOX 6

Family Free Day means Family FUN! ALL visitors receive free admission — you do not need to be a Milwaukee County resident. The parking fee still applies.

Don’t miss out on the final day of the season for the Giraffe Experience presented by Miller Lite and Dino Don’s Dragon Kingdom sponsored by Sendik’s Food Market!

Be transported to the habitats of Rwanda’s mountain gorillas with the Gorilla Trek Virtual Reality Experience! This fully-immersive and dynamic exhibit is the newest attraction now open. The Milwaukee County Zoo is the first zoo in the country to unveil this Experience — a 360-degree live action virtual reality film with motion platform seating, to give an unprecedented look at one of nature’s most intriguing and endangered animals.

Zoo hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission gates close 45 minutes prior to Zoo closing time, and animal buildings close 15 minutes prior to Zoo closing.
