Great time for a half day outing. Updated natural exhibits. Nice layout. The train ride was a favorite for the children and adults. Also the sky view buckets provided a super view from above. Concession stand/lunch pavilion somewhat crowded but plenty of outside seating. Petting zoo fun for little ones.

We were in Montgomery visiting family and wanted something fun to do with the kids, so to the zoo we went! The heat is stifling, so we arrived when they opened at 9:00am. For the first hour or, we were the only people around! It was definitely quiet the whole time we were there. We enjoyed seeing the exhibits. I... More

A great place to see various animals in their habitats. You can see them by train, skylift or walking. Also extra large picnic areas and FUN playground! And don't forget to visit the bird habitat where you can feed the birds!

This is a well maintained little zoo. The animals looked well taken care of and happy/content. Some unusual species too. The only drawback was the train. You really cannot see anything from the train like other zoos. The Mann museum was great. It really let's you get up close and personal with many large predators. The kids as well as... More

Great zoo for a trip with our 2 and 4 year old grandkids. Had animals, train ride, and a zip line. The big hit with the kids was being allowed in the bird aviary and getting to buy food sticks to hold so that the birds could perch.We went during the heat of the day and the animals were a... More

This is an excellent zoo for a small city. They have many animals that are normally found in larger zoos. My wife especially enjoyed the petting zoo. We took the train ride. This was pretty much a waste of time. I thought the train would take us through the zoo and close to the animals. This was not the case.... More

The Montgomery Zoo is an immaculately kept facility that arranges its exhibits by continents. Its exhibits span Australia, South America, North America, Asia and Africa. It is laid out in two loops (sort of a figure eight) configuration with a restaurant and pavilion at the intersection of the two loops. In addition to the animals, there is a Skytram and... More
