This is an awesome zoo! Be prepared to spend the whole day here. There is so much to see and do. Be sure to check out montgomeryzoo.com to plan your day around chair lift rides and giraffe feedings, along with the fabulous food.

Spent a beautiful day in a great little zoo! Very clean and good variety of animals. Some of the walkways were a little rough in spots but, overall easy going. Good place for walking. Will definitely be visiting again & often.

Spent an entire day with all three kids ages 21 months to 9 years. Advice : being a little cash for feeding animals and train tickets. It's worth renting a stroller since they have steering wheels and a shade cover. Totally kept the baby occupied!...More

So, the zoo itself was great! Lots of animals in giant, "natural habitats". Nothing in tiny cages. Our toddler was obsessed with the train that runs through the whole zoo. (unfortunately every ride is $3) It's really big, tons to look at. Animals are well...More
