Went to see the light show. Lights were nice, but staff at "Overlook Cafe' were less than friendly. Not many choices for warm drinks. gift shop had little to offer. Maybe summer is a better time to visit, during the day.

Given the economy and the immense expense to keep a zoo going, I think they are doing a great job and hence the 5 star rating. It is no Disney, and given it does not have the budget of Disney, only the support of the community, they ended up doing a great job. Bottom line is the place was clean... More

This zoo was much nicer than I was expecting. Plenty of nice animals in neat exhibit areas. They have and additional museum that is fun to walk through and look at stuffed animals. The zoo has many additional options that they charge for: Train ride, gondal, paddle boats.

My family really enjoyed the zoo, some of the animals where kinda lazy that day, and was relaxing under the shade.The zoo was'nt busy on the day that we visited, not croweded at all, the concession stands where closed, maybe because the zoo wasnt busy, but over all we enjoyed.

I have been to this zoo a few times and had a great time. It's more spread out then the Birmingham Zoo, smaller also but there are paddle boat rentals and a sky lift. The open area savanna was our favorite. We love to feed the giraffes (although there's not a keeper present which worries me) and watch the elephant... More

Zoo is clean! Was worth feeding the birds and giraffes for a little extra! We will be going back! Went on a Sunday, it was not busy either, which was a big plus! If you are in the area, take a visit!

I have visited this Zoo several times. I like how up close you can get to the animals. Each time there is more to experience. We ate at the restaurant there. The food was good, tasty, and hot. The atmosphere is nice. If I have a complaint it would be the false advertisement on the price of gate admission. on... More

We were only in Montgomery for the weekend and decided to spend Sunday morning at the zoo. We had a great time! The zoo is laid out by continent and easily navigated. There were some great animals and they were all pretty active and engaging. We were saddened by the sloth bear, though, who paced back and forth...but loved the... More

The Montgomery Zoo is largely what I expected from a small/medium sized zoo in this area. The animals seemed to be cared for if not in smaller cages (especially the predators). It was sad to see the leopards and sloth bear pacing back and forth for hours. I wish that the zoo had plaques and more information on how the... More
