Henry Vilas us a beautiful free zoo. Although it is kinda small, and has nothing more than the usual staple of zoo animals, it's still awesome because it is free. Parking can and probably will be a problem, so plan accordingly. The zoo is located by a lake which is perfect for setting up picnics

Budget tight? Vilas is a delight. We went because it was FREE! The Henry Vilas Zoo is small, but just right. We took our two year old, and anything larger would have been overwhelming. It was tough to park, but I was surprised to find the zoo was not over crowded. I see many visits to Madison in our families future.

This zoo is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon with your family. First of all, it's free. They have such a large variety of animals. It is large enough to feel like you have been at the zoo, but small enough to walk in a few hours and see everything. Interactive petting zoo, and "Friends of the Animals" has educational close up sessions for everyone to enjoy. A wonderful experience.

PROS: Free, large selection
CONS: none

This is a free zoo in Madison. Street signs point the direction to the zoo, so it easy enough to find.

Parking is a problem most of the time. Plan on walking some distance and you won't be disappointed most of the time.

This zoo has the usual zoo animals. This zoo also has different buildings for educational displays and games for the children. The children do seem to enjoy these and they are well planned for entertainment and educational value.

There is a petting zoo where visitors may also feed the animals during certain designated times of the day. Camel rides are offered also, but again, at designated times.

There are tables provided inside and outside of the zoo for picnics. The outside table area also has outdoor structures for the children to play on.

A gift and souvenier shop is also located inside the zoo. The prices are high, although there are some really neat novelties here that would make nice souveniers and/or unusual gifts.

This is a fun place to go with children!
