Membership cardMembership has its privileges. Members receive unlimited admission to the Zoo, discounts at our gift shop and restaurant, invitations to exclusive members-only events and more.

And now, the Virginia Zoo has upgraded its membership process!

What’s in it for you?
- A cute new scannable membership card for memberships purchased or renewed after March 1, 2013
- Speedier entry with scannable card and valid photo ID
- Personalized information on events and special offers

The new system will result in a few other changes of note:
- Photo ID from one of the named primary members is required for entry
- When leaving the Zoo, members will need to get their hands stamped in the Membership Office for same day re-entry

Thank you for your continued support and for helping us create a greener, more streamlined membership process. More information on membership at the links below...
