Miller Park Zoo is a great small zoo. Younger children will like the special kids' building with puzzles, games, dress-up clothes, and a variety of small animals and insects. The rain forest building is nicely done and would be great to visit after a unit on the rain forest. The zoo is nearly 100 years old, but it feels very up-to-date in most sections. The landscaping is beautiful. Kids like riding the carousel in the summer. The Zoo often has children's classes and has a Junior Zookeeper class for junior high kids and up. The store has a wide variety of prices and lots of animal related objects, including reindeer poop earrings that are popular throughout the U.S. Enjoy the zoo.
