  • Was beautiful! Fall colors, animals out and seemed content. My only complaint were the flocks of Canadian geese. They chased us all around the water way. Just awful and scary. Very aggressive!  more »
  • We go to the sanctuary fairly regularly. We love to walk through all the various sections and learn more about Wisconsin native animals and their habitats. The staff are all very knowledgeable and wel...  more »

  • I had always bypassed Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary on my way to the amusement park. I"m so glad we stopped at the wildlife sanctuary this time. It is much more developed than I had even hoped. There are several large buildings and outside hiking trails. The buildings house many well-developed educational displays. There are many live animals to see and possibly pet. There are also many mounts and skeletons and other educational displays. The displays are creative. For instance, a dark tunnel slide takes children into an area that is like a beaver den and has mounts of things that would be found in a pond and in a beaver den. There aren't as many exotic animals as you would find at a zoo. But there are many local birds, reptiles and mammals. I was particularly impressed with the birds of prey. We enjoyed the release of rehabilitated animals on Green Bay Children's Day 2017. If you're headed to Bay Beach don't miss this part. It is top-quality, child-friendly education.
  • Looking for a cheap (free!) activity for the family? The Wildlife Sanctuary is a great option in the area! While it does not have a large assortment of animals like a traditional zoo, it still has enough to see with lots of walking trails to enjoy for a nice relaxing day. You can even get some feed for the birds and feed the ducks and geese. There really isn't much in the way of food and drink options which would be a great addition to the Sanctuary (even if it was light-fare options). At least Bay Beach isn't far and is a great way to spend your day in tandem with the Sanctuary.
  • Wonderful facilities for the entire family! It was our second visit there and it didn't disappoint! The price is right! This last visit the wolves were up by the window which was really neat!
  • Please don't bring your own corn. The donations go directly to support the animals and sanctuary. Other than that, thise place is great. Nice views and plenty of wildlife for kids and adults alike.
  • I love coming here with the whole family. It's a great place to learn about animals native to the area and conservation. Plenty of activities and animals inside and out for people of all ages. Five stars for a great day of family fun (and it's all free to walk around)

Where to stay in Green Bay

Both boutique hotels and large chains are located throughout the downtown area and near Lambeau Stadium. Both locations are close to the city's attractions. Consider a stay just outside the city near Lake Michigan for impressive views and beautiful surroundings. Many of the lakeside lodgings offer transport to the city center and sporting events.
