Zoo Montana is a small zoo. We really enjoyed it. They have a very impressive bird of prey exhibit, and there is lots of space to social distance. Very worthwhile. more »
Lovely little zoo. The animals seem happy and the staff seems to truly care about their well being. The indoor section is well organized and I love the handwritten information signs. Outdoor animals are awesome as well. Multiple places to view enclosures from in case an animal is hiding.
Beautiful very family friendly park! Take all your children here of any age and I believe there will be something for everyone. To see a living tiger and grizzly bears up close is truly amazing. The small animals were as fun to see as well.
