We love zoos. We go to small zoos and large zoos and always have a good time. Montgomery Zoo was no exception, we had a very good time while there. The big benefit to most small zoos is that you have closer access to the...More

Love the Montgomery zoo. Very clean and helpful staff. Even when they have larger crowds for different events, they have a way of helping the crowd flow move smoothly.

The Montgomery Zoo was a fantastic weekend getaway for my family. We got there early. Weather was perfect,no lines, and allowed us to roam without the crowds. It is well kept and animal attractions are secure for little ones. My favorite attraction was the skyline....More

Reasonably priced and lots to do. Family friendly. Petting Zoo, train, chair lift, and play ground. Only thing expensive here is the concessions, which is to be expected.

This zoo isn't as big as some others but has many animals I've never saw before and I've visited most of the zoos located in the southeast. Very clean , fair price for admission and gift store items.

I don't think they allow pets unless maybe it's a service dog. You might want to contact them to be sure though.
Are there wheelchairs or motorized vehicles for elderly and disabled?
