  • We visited this zoo with 2 kids, 9 and 8 years old and they both had a great time exploring the path ways and seeing the animals. We really enjoyed the animal habitats and hearing from the zoo interpr...  more »

  • I really wish we didn't have this zoo. The exhibits are so small and there's like 30 animals. I guess it's a good children's activity since it's small and had a play park but I feel so bad for the ani...  more »

  • I wish it was better. For anyone coming to Montana one of there main bucket list items is the native animals. I just thought there should be more than three goats to pet and a few others you can feed. I wish that there was more staff or something to keep the enclosures cleaner and talk about the animals that are there. My family and I went to the Denver zoo and it was amazing so there it's harr not to compare.
  • Zoo Montana is a small zoo, but the exhibits are top-notch and improvements are seen on a regular basis. It is obvious that the animals receive the best care and enhancements available. Bring sunscreen and insect repellant in the summer - you are outdoors and bugs and sun are to be expected.
  • Very clean and user friendly. All of the animals seem well provided for. The grounds are lovely!
  • I really like this place due to the fact that it is more of a nature walk than a zoo. It's not overcrowded. The scenery is beautiful. There are a few animals, and it has a magnificent playground at the end of the walk. Perfect family activity
  • Great local zoo with a very wilderness feel. The outdoor setting is almost as inviting as the animals. It is like a stroll through the woods where you can also see animals.
