If you’ve hit the “my kids are driving me crazy and I have run out of ways to keep them entertained” part of summer break, take them to Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo and take advantage of free admission through Wednesday. 

Safety and wellness is the name of the game this week at the Brookfield Zoo, and they want your family to be a part of the fun so they are offering Kids’ Free Days through Wednesday, August 9th.

Kids 12 and under will get into the Brookfield Zoo for free through Wednesday (adult admission and parking fees still apply) and will get to experience special activities like:

  • A peek inside a real ambulance
  • Games and activities pertaining to health and wellness
  • Complimentary healthy snacks (while supplies last) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Animal care knowledge from zoo keeper staff, and much more!

Brookfield Zoo is open 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. during Kids’ Free Days, and adult tickets can be purchased online here.
