Animal Enrichment Activities

Our animals are joining in the Egg Day fun too, as they enjoy Easter-related enrichment items in their exhibits.  Enrichment keeps the animals active and healthy, allowing them to express behaviors similar to those they would in the wild.

Zoo admission is $16.25 for adults, $13.25 for children (3 to 12 years), free for children  2 and under, and $15.25 for senior citizens (60 and older). Milwaukee County residents with I.D. receive $1.75 off regular Zoo admission. Parking is $12. Zoological Society membership is  valid for Egg Day.
