Perhaps I am just used to the Riverbanks Zoo in SC, but I was really disappointed with this zoo. We walked the zoo in less than 2 hours. There was hardly anyone there. Either the animals were just put away due to the heat or they are working on a lot of exhibits right now. The South America section had... More

Though you could easily spend $40 on a single person here, it is completely worth it. From feeding the giraffes to take a lift over the zoo this place is great for friends and family. My friends have gone at least five times in the past few years.

Took 3 (13 yr olds) to the zoo on 4th of July. Great Zoo for a smaller area. Pricey though. We spent over $100 for entrance, train ride (wouldn't do again, and chair lift (great views!). That was with military discount.

A good family experience. Alot of animals to see, though some like to hide out. Would like to have the animal details explained a little more though . Prices on food and drinks are really to high though for a family outing.

The prices to get in were quite high for this small zoo. The animal enclosures are so small that I felt mostly bad for the animals. Some attractions were not available and with no explanation for it. Overall, just an average zoo experience.

The Montgomery Zoo was a wonderful attraction. Great family atmosphere and easy access to the animals. Not much interaction with the animals but a top notch zoo.

This is a very nice zoo. It's not large but does have a good variety of animals, birds and most of everything you would expect to see at a zoo. They do a good job of showing the animals in somewhat their natural habitat. We've been twice over a two year period as we do not visit Montgomery all that... More

It's not the San Diego Zoo but it was fun. Our 8 year old sons really enjoyed it even though it was HOT! Lots of shade and we saw some things we never saw before like the jaguar. Feeding the giraffe was also fun for the twins. Overall it was a clean place to visit but wish they could find... More

I first took my granddaughter when she was very young, and she seemed mesmerized with all the animals and people, sights, and sounds!!! Last Christmas, we took her on the train ride to see the C'mas lights, and she was really impressed (at age 3)!

My grand kids and I spent time at the Montgomery Zoo (approximately 2 1/2 hours). It was quite "hot" during our visit however, this was a planned visit with a 12 year-old and a two-year old. While our experience was nothing less than a positive one it was too hot for the animals to come out of their natural habitats... More
