Benefits of a Zoo Pass to the Milwaukee County Zoo


No matter who you are, you want to save money. The Zoological Society of Milwaukee agrees and offers one of the best deals in town – the Zoo Pass

What do you get with a Zoo Pass?

The biggest advantage to a Zoo Pass is getting free regular admission to the Milwaukee County Zoo for 12 months from whenever you join. A Family membership can pay for itself after two visits. Imagine getting to visit your favorite animals whenever you’d like! You don’t have to spend all day to try and get your money’s worth. Come for a quick walk, when the kids need to get out of the house or spend the entire day; the choice is yours.

Zoo Pass members are invited to two free summer-time events just for them. The evening events include food trucks, entertainment and of course animals. Members also receive special discounts on attractions like the virtual reality exhibit, the ropes course, and the Sky Safari. 

Want to ride the train, carousel or see the Summer Exhibit at the Zoo? Zoo Pass members have electronic coupons on their Zoo Pass that can give them access. New members receive 4 coupons each good for one ticket.

Members can register for Zoo Classes and Camps before the general public, plus they get a discount!

Going on a trip? Your Zoo Pass can get you free or discounted admission to more than 150 other zoos and aquariums nationwide.  

When you are at the Zoo, use the Zoo Pass to get 10% off at the gift shop. 

Other benefits include free or discounted events inside the Zoo, a subscription to Wild Things newsletter and Alive Magazine and Calendar filled with inside stories about the Zoo.

Something for everyone!

If you haven’t been to the Zoo in a while, or even if you have, there is much to see and enjoy at each visit! It never gets old going face-to-face with Happy the hippo in his pool. Only a piece of glass separates you, giving you a view you’ll never get tired of. Or, witness the Zoo’s largest snake, a green anaconda named Olive. And the big cats are sure to take your breath away; whether it’s the jaguar, lionesses or majestic tigers. The Zoo is home to more than 2,000 animals and 330 species. 

Your Zoo Pass makes a difference

You can feel good about purchasing a pass knowing that the Milwaukee County Zoo will receive 50% of the gross income from each Zoo Pass, which allows them to care for the animals and keep the Zoo a top destination.

To purchase a Zoo Pass you can go to or call 414-258-2333.
