We were pleasantly surprised on how big and entertaining the zoo was. There is a train ride, pedal boats and you can feed giraffes. Had a blast and so did my 12 and 14 year old.

This was our first visit to this zoo and we were pleasantly surprised! It’s small, but there are a lot of animals and activities packed in there. The Mann Museum was impressive too- lots of exhibits.

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.
