  • This is a small zoo that has been upgraded considerably in the last half decade, largely due to a terrific zoo Director. The zoo is a meandering walk through the woods, over a creek and bridges, with ...  more »
  • Zoo Montana is a nice little zoo on the west end of Billings, right off I-90. It focuses on the animals of the American West, so you'll find grizzly bears, bald eagles, otters and wolves. You can also...  more »
  • Doesn't really compare to zoos in the big city. But if you have a few hours to kill and a kid to entertain definitely worth the admission.

  • Great resource for those yearning for the exotic out here in Montana. ZooMontana lacks luster relative to other zoos I've been to. It's pretty small and the selection of animals isn't wide. However, it is always a pleasure to check out the big cats, and wolf packs lazily napping. Gotta check it out at least once!
  • Amazing zoo and venue. Jeff Ewalt and his amazing staff have turn this into another unique thing about Billings.
  • Absolutely love Zoo Montana! We go as often as we can, we took the Grandkids and they had a great time! It just happened to be Family Fun Day which was even better. What a great day!
  • Nice place to spend the day with the family. The girls loved it! It was a nice little walk and affordable! We will be going back for sure.😀
  • The zoo has done a major transformation since I was a kid. It's a very nice zoo for our size of area. A great place to get out with kids.
