We are traveling through the area and wanted an interesting stop to spend a few hours. It took us 3 hrs to amble past all the exhibits including the natural history museum. Our party included a wide age range: me, my adult daughter, my 14 yo son and 10 yo daughter. The variety of animals and being able to get... More

We have two toddlers and since Montgomery doesn't really have much to offer, the Zoo is the place to be!! Every year we get the membership for the family. They have an AMAZING playground which both kids really enjoy! Also, their petting zoo is really cute and fun. You can feed the goats by purchasing food through the vending machine... More

The entrance fee was $15/person with no discounts for any reason and was not worth it. We were very disappointed. If you wanted to get the free train ride, the wait in line was two hours.

This probably one of the worst experiences we have had for a family. It costs $15 for everyone, unless you were 3 or under. We had four in our household so it was $60. There were NO discounts either. All you saw were the xmas lights. The train was working so as an alternative they let you ride the ski... More

We are definitely, "zoo people", stopping wherever and whenever we can. I expected that the Montgomery zoo would be smaller than we are used to and perhaps less impressive. I was wrong! The zoo is very well laid out, has exceptional variety of animals, and the environment for each animal is so well done! The animals look so healthy. Thank... More

Been years since I've been here. Several exhibits need to be upgraded. Animals look unhappy. Nice easy walking set up.

Small but well designed park with a lot packed in. Fun train ride, nice Pavillion, great shaded paths for hot summers. Truly, for a small park, it packs a big impact and is preferable to other Zoos I have visited. Tons of animals. Love the otters. The old part of the park is in dire need of update though the...

Loved this zoo! Saw baby hippo, fed the giraffe family and rode the train. The zoo is easy to navigate and the staff very helpful. There is a huge playground with benches and plenty of trees with restrooms close by. Had a fun visit and will be back.
