Located on the outskirts of Madison, Wisconsin, Henry Vilas Zoo is a small zoo that’s perfect for families with young kids. Featured exhibits include a children’s zoo, primate house and a tropical forest aviary.
Another bonus? Admission is free!
Seasonal hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Tip: Arrive when the zoo opens to secure a parking spot at or around the zoo; zoo and street parking is very limited.
