While you hate to criticize a zoo in these tough financial times, charging $15 per person for a train ride less than 15 minutes long and having no animals on display is just too much. Been to columbus and cincinnati zoos and they had marvelous lights and many animals. Save your $

After moving to the area a trip to the zoo was on the top of the list. I had read mixed reviews and was a bit nervous. I found the grounds to be clean and well kept. The animals are easy to see and look healthy. The layout is nice and makes for a very nice afternoon stroll. The new... More

We are members of the Zoo. It is great for our kids, and the exhibits are fantastic. Having been to the National Zoo in D.C. this compares favorably. The lion and tiger exhibits are great, and the kids love the park and feeding all the animals. It is definitely worth a trip whether you live or are visiting Montgomery. Highly... More

My family loves to go to the zoo! The Montgomery Zoo is a great place to take the kids or even enjoy and adult stroll and animal viewing. This zoo can get very busy during certain days of the year as this is a field trip destination. However, if you prefer less crowded times, I think it's best to call... More

The Zoo is a relaxing family entertainment venue that all ages will enjoy. The animals are great and some you can interact with such as feeding or petting. The Monkeys are so much fun to watch. There is a train, sky lift, and concessions that are really good. A place for FUN!!!

This is a great zoo! Animals in large open areas. If you have more than two children (and want to ride the train) buy the annual pass. It commutes to other zoos and will save you money. Even on your first visit.
