For over a hundred years, the Milwaukee Country Zoo has been displaying birds and mammals. Originally, in 1892, the Zoo was a small exhibit in downtown Milwaukee. Ten years later, the Zoo had 800 animals and had grown into 23 acres of land. In 1934, the Zoo was acquired by the city commission and received a budget to expand further, and in 1958 the Zoo moved to 200 acres with hundreds of species on display.
Presently, the Milwaukee County Zoo is acclaimed as one of the top zoos in the nation. The Zoo has taken on more responsibility in years of late in propagating and breeding endangered species, in association with the Species Survival Plan. The Zoo has implemented countless exhibits over the decades to provide further comfort to the animals residing in the Zoo.
The Milwaukee County Zoo is an enjoyable attraction for Milwaukee visitors and residents alike. The Zoo is located at 10001 W. Blue Mound Rd., and hours vary throughout the year.
