Overcast and Windy


Membership Overview

A Virginia Zoo membership is not just your ticket in through the gates, although that’s a value in itself. Zoo membership is a way you can be part of something bigger: your membership dollars and donations help us provide care for our hundreds of rare and endangered animals. Members are part of our Zoo family!

Your membership includes:

  • Free Zoo admission (with the exception of selected special events)
  • Free quarterly newsletter, The Virginia Zoo Review
  • Discounts at the Zoo gift shop and restaurant
  • Discounts on Zoo education programs & family programs – including our very popular summer camps
  • Exclusive invitations to member-only events and programs
  • Free or discounted admission to over 125 other zoos and aquariums nationwide

Membership year consists of 12 months from the time you join. When you visit the Zoo, simply present your membership card and valid photo ID. Please remember that your membership card is non-transferable and, where applicable, members must accompany guests.

For more information, call us at (757) 441-2374, ext 242.
