Oceans of Fun is really dedicated to providing a superb program. We love going every time visit the zoo. What really impressed me was their emphasis on education and learning about the animals. It is definitely entertaining, but you can tell they want this to be more than demonstrating behaviors. For those who will never get to travel to California... More

The summer seal/sealion show is a staple and is always entertaining and humorous. Several opportunities to visit and enjoy the show have ended with a different fun experience.

My 10 year old did the 1 week seal ion and seal camp. He loved it and wants to go back. Great to see him present and interact with the animals. Before and after care was provided if needed.

Oceans of Fun is inside of the Milwaukee Zoo. It is an additional cost after your zoo admission. Extremely family friendly and worth a visit!

We visited the Milwaukee Zoo and within it, the special exhibit sting ray tank in the Oceans of Fun area. The tank was enormous, and held dozens of sting ray, horseshoe crab and small sharks. We had a great time touching the rays as they swam round and round in the tank like skaters on a rink. A fun exhibit... More

This show was my daughter favorite show at the zoo. It was cheap enough to take the whole family. At the end of the show, try to take a family picture with the sea lion. My daughter love to show people that picture.

It moved on to the kitchen where the children had to inspect and prepare the fish. Then the most exciting part going out to the big show pool and interacting... More

I definitely definitely do not recommend this to anyone who isn't already at the zoo. It is located inside the Milwaukee County Zoo, but there are limited showtimes. If you are already there and like animals, then definitely stop in- there are some cute animals. There is no interactive activity unless you are a child under 8 and have a... More

I bought the sea lion experience as a groupon so my son and a friend could participate in a group of 15 students for 2 1/2 hours working closely with the trainers and sea lions at the Milwaukee zoo. It started with a classroom session, then moved to small groups who helped prepare the fish they would feed the animals.... More
