Memberships as a Gift

Membership Gift Certificate

An annual membership to the Virginia Zoo is a great gift for a family that keeps on giving all year long!

When you purchase a gift certificate, the recipient will bring it with them to the Virginia Zoo the next time they visit in order to redeem the certificate for a membership. Membership gift certificates expire one year from the purchase date. The membership itself expires one year from the date the certificate is redeemed.

For additional assistance, call the Membership Department at (757) 441-2374 ext. 257.
