Enjoy Discounted Wednesdays at the Milwaukee County Zoo!

Did you know that the Milwaukee County Zoo offers a special treat for us locals?

Every Wednesday, Milwaukee County residents can enjoy a day at the zoo at significantly reduced rates.

This is a perfect opportunity to break the mid-week monotony and give the kids a fun experience without stretching the budget.

What’s the Deal?

On Wednesdays, adults can get in for just $10.50 and kids aged 3 to 12 for only $8.00. Just remember to bring your Milwaukee County I.D. to snag these sweet savings.

Other reduced admission days include Sunday, May 19th and Sunday, September 15th, 2024. Check their website for Family Free Days starting in October!

Zoo Hours to Keep in Mind

Make sure to plan your visit according to the zoo’s schedule:

  • Now through May 24, 2024 – Weekdays: 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Weekends: 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • May 25 through Sept. 2, 2024 – Daily: 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission gates close 45 minutes before the zoo closes, and the animal buildings shut down 15 minutes prior. So, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to explore!

Whether it’s your first visit or your fiftieth, there’s always something new to see and do at the zoo. Why not revisit some of our previous posts to make the most of your day?

And don’t forget, parking is $15 per passenger vehicle and $20 for buses. So, maybe carpooling with another family could be a good idea?


Wednesday at the Milwaukee County Zoo is a fantastic way for our community to enjoy a day surrounded by nature and wildlife at a friendly price.
