With more than 2,000 mammals, birds, fish, amphibians, and reptiles across 200 acres, Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the top attractions in the city. It’s fun for all ages, all year-round, which makes it a great stop on your list no matter when you’re in town. Highlights in the different areas include:

  • Aquatic and Reptile Center: Chinese alligators, native to the Yangtze River, are critically endangered
  • Australia: Emus can run up to 30 mph
  • Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country: The striking Amur tigers each have their own pattern of stripes
  • North America: Polar bear Snow Lilly is known for her spunky personality
  • Primates of the World: The West African Diana monkey, with a crescent-shaped brow band, is active during the day
  • Small Mammals: The potto, a nocturnal tree-dweller found in the canopies of the African rain forests, is one of the zoo’s most unique animals
