You won't be blown away since this zoo is pretty much like any other zoo, but it's definitely worth the trip if you are in the Montgomery area as there is plenty to see and do. They have a playground, paddle boats, train rides, sky lift and much more for everyone to enjoy. And it's a pretty large zoo at... More

We had a great day at the zoo! The Cafe is expensive but that's to be expected. The birds were a lot of fun and the sky lift was great to look out over the zoo.

My family was able to attend the Montgomery Zoo this past weekend. I had not been there for many years. While we did have a good time overall, I left feeling very sad for the animals at the zoo. Many of them appeared unhappy, possibly not getting enough stimulation. It seemed that much more emphasis was being placed on customer... More

The zoo was fun! The sky lift was particularly fun for sightseeing. Our children enjoyed the playground too. Many habitats but several seemed very small, especially for black panther. ☹️

We drove down from Birmingham on a Saturday because we were looking for something different to do, and based on the other reviews we decided to give it a shot. When we got there the line to purchase tickets was rather long but it moved surprisingly quickly and the employees were friendly and personable. Once inside, the zoo is not... More

We took our daughter here for her birthday and she loved it. She's 4. There are lots of animals to see and even a park for the kids to play.

My children gave my husband and I a yearly pass to the Montgomery Zoo. On many occasions we have taken our grandchildren. We enjoy having a picnic lunch, riding the train, and playing on the playground. The zoo is always very clean. A great place to have family time without spending a ton. We will definitely renew our membership.

What a surprise! Took the entire family son, spouse, 3 grandchildren and us; got a military discount which was great. The zoo was clean, animals were well taken care of and a perfect day for the family. Noticed that you can bring a picnic lunch if you wish which would save $$$$ also an added bonus. Small train to ride... More

No flamboyant paragraphs this time. Great spot for a spontaneous fun outing......or maybe a quick date. Sky ride costs 5 per person (dont lose your shoes in the lake like my son did).

I've been more than a few times and it never gets old, usually an all day event. We love the train ride and the bird house but my favorite is the sky lift. And after all that, there is still the awesome playground to wear out the kids before the drive home.
