Zoo Membership Benefits

Special monthly discounts, offers and rewards throughout the year!
Virginia Zoo Membership Plans include year-round access to the Zoo, free or discounted admission to Zoo events and other exclusive Membership benefits.

2024 Monthly Perks

Our monthly perks are listed several months in advance to give our members a heads-up on what to look forward to. As our swaps must be coordinated with other institutions, complete details are not finalized until closer to the start of that swap month. Once these details are confirmed, an email is sent out to share everything about the swap with our members.
