This is a VERY SMALL zoo. Half of it is comprised of domesticated animals (or so it seems). Though the zoo is located in Montana, there are no bears. If you're from out of town, save your money and drive to Yellowstone National park where you can see animals in the wild. The zoo does have scheduled activities for kids, so it's good for a day out with the little ones if you're stuck in town. Just don't expect anything like the Denver, San Diego, D.C. zoo's.
