Miller Park Family Fun Guide: 10 tips for visiting with kids


At Miller Park (1 Brewers Way, Milwaukee, WI 53214), your whole family can root for a Brewers win, and catch a glimpse of the famous racing sausages.

Here are some tips for your next visit to Miller Park with kids:

1. Arrive early to watch batting practice.

You’ll avoid the crowds, you’ll get a chance to see the vast, empty stadium during batting practice, and you’ll give your kids a chance to run around freely before the game.

2. Be a part of Hank Aaron history.

Did you know you can find the landing spot of Hank Aaron’s 755th and final home run ball? It’s located in the Brewers 1 Parking Lot, and there’s a plaque to commemorate it. It happened in Milwaukee on July 20, 1976. Go on a scavenger hunt to find it!

3. Sit in the family section.

Miller Park offers a special alcohol-free family section to avoid sitting near the rambunctious people that probably resemble your former self. Your kids will have fun meeting other mini-Brewers fans, and you won’t feel as terrible when your toddler throws a nacho at the person in front of them. The view’s not bad either!

Other good seats for kids & families are Sections 408, 409, 410, & 411, because they are right above the kids attractions on the lower level and they are shaded when the roof is open. (The low prices don't hurt, either.)

4. Burn off energy at the playgrounds.

The newly remodeled Aurora Health Care KidZone and is located on the Terrace Level behind home plate. It's open every home game when the gates open through the 8th inning and is meant for kids ages ten and under, especially toddlers. This interactive play area offers a child-size clubhouse, life-size baseball cards, photo opportunities, and more.

You can also visit the US Cellular Power Playground located on the field level in the right field corner. Slide down a smaller version of the Bernie Brewer slide, and try your hand in the batting and pitching cages.

There's also a playground outside, adjacent to Helfaer Field.

5. Nurse or pump in peace.

Nursing moms can breastfeed anywhere where they are authorized to be present, but if you’re looking for somewhere private to nurse, you can go to the Nursing Suite located on the field level inside First Aid, next to Guest Relations, or in the Mamava Pod on the Terrace Level. There are rocking chairs, privacy screens, and a changing table.

6. Run the bases.

Visit on a Sunday, when all kids ages 14 and under can come down to the field and run the bases at Miller Park. The postgame Kids Run the Bases line begins along the first-base line on the Field Level.

7. Experience the "Selig Experience".

Be sure to stop by the Selig Experience on any game day. This new state-of-the-art attraction is totally free on game days, located in the Loge Level in the left field corner. You’ll enjoy an immersive, multimedia presentation that tells the story of former Brewers Owner Bud Selig and his quest to save and promote Major League Baseball in Milwaukee. (Spoiler alert: At the end, you’ll have a very authentic-feeling 3D encounter with Mr. Selig himself.)

8. Get a First Game Certificate or pin.

First-time guests to Miller Park can claim their complimentary First Game Certificate at a Brewers Guest Relations kiosk (Field Level near Section 116, the Loge Level behind Section 221, and on the Terrace Level behind Section 419).

9. Slide down Bernie's Slide.

Available before select Brewers home games, the Bernie's Slide Experience includes a brief behind-the-scenes tour of Miller Park, up to five rides down Bernie's Slide, and photo opportunities. The experience is available for groups up to eight people (age restrictions apply). For booking opportunities and a complete list of policies and procedures, visit brewers.com/Slide. Game tickets are required.

10. Stroll down autograph alley.

Your kids will love the baseballs signed by legends and fans alike, displayed artistically in glass cases. You'll find autograph alley on the field level in the third base corner of the stadium.
