We are happy to announce that beginning on June 1, masks will no longer be required for guests who are enjoying the OUTDOOR spaces at the Zoo. Masks WILL still be required for indoor exhibits, as social distancing is difficult inside.

Your cooperation during the pandemic has been inspirational, and your continued patience is appreciated by all of us here at the Zoological Society of Milwaukee.

We can't wait to see your smiles again! ❤️
