Taking the behind-the-scenes tour was definitely the best option for a visit to the UWEC and one of the best zoo visit I ever had. The guides are well informed and offer information on not only the animals in general but on their specific animals....More

It is a small park. You can do it 2 hours if you walk slow. I would recommend to visit around the feeding hours. The entry fee was around $12 USD per tourist.
How much can two adults pay for the Tour? Am FRED.
