I loved this zoo. It's not a big as the Birmingham Zoo, but the Mann Museum made it worth going. Also loved the Skylift, and I'm afraid of heights!

It's not a huge zoo, easy to cover in a couple hours and a nice day out for a family with young children. It had some nice exhibits, and some of the major animals that you'd hope to see at a zoo, lions, tiger, giraffes, etc. I particularly enjoyed the young elephant swimming and playing in the water on such...

Clean, easy walking, not crowded, animals were moving around. The kids were able to easily see the animals. Allow 2-2 1/2 hours.

Having a young daughter means that zoo memberships are a "must have." The Montgomery Zoo compares favorably with zoos in Oklahoma City, Tucson, and Phoenix. All have a similar vibe and set of attractions. Feeding the parakeets is a favorite in Montgomery. They also have a pair of black panther cubs, although mom is the real attraction!!! Easy to walk...

I visited this zoo the first time in 98. It was good then and it is even better now. They obviously pay a lot of attention to providing good habitats. The size of the zoo and the layout make it perfect to take children of all ages. The layout is a hub and spoke design. So that you can walk... More

I always enjoy the zoo and with the overhead ride it is now even more enjoyable. The train ride is still disappointing as you really see nothing but shrubbery during the ride. The zoo looked to be well kept and fairly clean. Wish we had ridden the overhead ride more than once. It was a very fair price for such... More

We tend to stop at a lot of zoos on our travels and were not sure about this one after some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. There is a nice variety of animals. Some of the newer exhibits are done very well, allowing for good viewing. The Outlook area is really nice where you can get a... More

Nice zoo not very big but lot to see. Very clean and people were nice. Have a sky lift ride also a train ride for kids and paddle boats. Just $15 a person to get in. How ever that don't include the sky lift or boats. But still not bad for a fun day with the family.

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.
