Become a Member

It has been said that membership has it’s privileges, and when you buy yours to the Minnesota Zoo, you will receive many perks.

The first one is that your admission is always free during regular zoo hours and during members only events. Parking is also free, which is a savings of five dollars every time you visit. If you want to go for a short visit or stay for the whole day, your cost per visit goes down each time you go.
