The Milwaukee County Zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals representing 330 species. While it’s always exciting to explore, it’s hard to know exactly where to begin. Click on the links below for overviews of major exhibit locations and a list of animals you’ll find there!
The Milwaukee County Zoo began in 1892 as a miniature mammal and bird display in Milwaukee’s Washington Park. The display proved to be a very popular attraction, and by the turn of the century it grew to over 800 animals on 23 acres of land.
During the next one hundred years, the Zoo experienced near-constant expansion, moving to a new 200-acre wooded site, now home to over 3,300 animals and 377 species.
