Montana's only wildlife park is nestled in 70 acres of plush Montana green. Follow Canyon Creek through ZooMontana's winding nature trail as you view native and exotic animals in their natural habitat. Children will enjoy the turn-of-the-century Montana Homestead petting zoo in a farm and ranch setting. Open every day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
if your comparing it to san diego zoo no don't waste your time, but i have been there many times
there is more to see there than the animals, the habitats and it is all open so you can get close up to what ever is there, it is a great walk, and even in winter a very quiet place to stroll thru, the staff is always gracious and helpful, as i understand it it is kept open and staffed alot by volunteer hours a good place to make a donation to, especially if you would like to see more animals there
We thought going to the Zoo would be something fun to do while we were in Billings for regular medical appointments. It was a joke and a waste of money. They have hardly any animals, in fact we decided we could've went to an Uncle's ranch and seen more animals. Now when we talk about it, we laugh because it was really sad!!
They have a "farm" area with goats, pigs, sheep, rabbits, peacocks. Also several native type animals like wolves, big horn sheep, bald eagles. Inside they have snakes, spiders, lizards, insects, etc. More exotic are the otters, red pandas, siberian tiger, asian deer.
Also have a great play place and picnic spot for families. Don't know what the review was talking about who said they had 6 animals in cages?! All the animals have very spacious and natural living areas - not a "cage" in sight, unlike other zoos I've been to!!!!
Wish there were giraffes, elephants, etc., but it is still a great outside activity and my kids like seeing goats and otters just as much. Not expensive like some big city zoos. We go 6-7 times a year.
Zoo Montana uses its natural resources to show the public the area wildlife along with a few exotic animals. This is not the type of zoo you would find in a big city. This is a great place to take my children to teach them about the animals they are likely to encounter in our area.
