  • We visited on a sunny Monday. It was $42 for me and my niece for admission, train ride, and sky lift. We paid an additional $2 to feed the parakeets. It was toasty on the sky lift on such a hot day. T...  more »

  • One of the best Zoos in this area, it wasn't too crowded but wasn't too spaced out either. Most of the animals were in open view, and the "Skylift" was a neat experience which offered a view from above. The zoo lacked some basic animals such as penguins and such (which maybe attributed to the smaller plot of land to which the zoo is on). The kids enjoyed this zoo over Birmingham's Zoo, and I did too. We packed some snacks and water which made this a cheap trip.
  • The staff was super friendly and helpful. The park itself was clean and we'll maintained. My favorite thing was that there were water misters situated all along the wall ways. We chose an extremely hot day to go, so the animals were not very active. They had better sense than the humans! LOL!! I would definitely suggest visiting the Montgomery Zoo and also supporting in anyway you possibly can.
  • Although this zoo is half the area of the one in Birmingham you feel like you are getting way more value on a visit. There is a good variety of species on display and the exhibits have a more natural feel to them. This along with a well thought out layout helps it feel like this zoo is quite a bit larger than its actual area. A recent addition to the zoo is a ski-lift type ride that gives you a bird's eye view of the savanna exhibit... always fun to look down from above the giraffes.
  • Animals are ten times healthier than Birmingham zoo. It's beautiful scenery. The staff is amazing and you can tell they actually take pride in there job. Lots of shade and love that you can get pretty close to the animals.
  • This zoo is perfect for a day trip, get out of the car on your way further South trip. The Montgomery Zoo is clean, affordable, has great exhibits, and has fun stuff for all ages 2 and up. My husband and our two girls (5 and 8) stopped through in July on our way home to Gulf Shores from visiting family in Ohio. We seen every animal exhibit, rode the train and the skylift "a must" within 2 hours. Our girls absutely loved it. :) Wonderful!
