Things to do

Milwaukee offers a treasure trove of family-friendly attractions. From exploring nature and wildlife in one of the best zoos in the country to immersing your kids in fascinating exhibits at the science and technology museum, here's where you should take your family on your Milwaukee adventure.

Head to the Milwaukee County Zoo, an animal haven that is home to over 330 different species spread across various exhibits. Here, your family will enjoy exciting hands-on experiences with the zoo's diverse residents, not to mention unique activities and child-friendly events throughout the year.

Then, dive into a world of discovery at the city's acclaimed science and technology museum. Discovery World offers children a doorway into the geology, geography, and wildlife of the Great Lakes Basin through a variety of interactive exhibits and educational programmes. It's an experience that promises to spark curiosity and creativity in your children, regardless of their age.

Don't forget to include the Betty Brinn Children's Museum on your list of places to visit. Open six days a week, it offers a variety of interactive exhibits that stimulate creativity and learning in children. What's more, entry is free on the third Thursday of every month.

Finally, hop aboard the city's modern streetcar system, The Hop. It provides a unique and convenient way of exploring the city. It's an activity that's not just practical, but fun for the whole family too.

When to visit

Timing is everything when it comes to planning the perfect family holiday. Luckily, Milwaukee offers something special for families, regardless of the season. From the blossoming beauty of spring to the cosy indoor comforts of winter, there's always something to enjoy.

Summer presents you with numerous outdoor activities and festivals, including Milwaukee's colossal music festival at Lake Michigan. For those who'd relish the colourful spectacle of changing leaves, autumn hosts a unique harvest fair, while spring offers pleasant weather for enjoying Milwaukee's outdoor adventures, such as scenic strolls or bike rides along the Oak Leaf Trail network. Winter, while chilly, is a great time to dive into the city's vibrant indoor events like the holiday markets. It’s always a good time to introduce your family to Milwaukee’s charm, and this guide is your ticket to planning that perfect trip.
