Membership for the Erie Zoo

Erie Zoo Memberships are the wildest deal in town! When you join the Erie Zoo, you receive free daily admission to our Zoo and discounted admission to over 50 zoos across the country.

Pick the Membership that works best for you and your family. You may join at any time, and the membership will always expire 365 days from the date of purchase!


  • Zoo Memberships will expire 1 year from the date of purchase
  • If current members renew BEFORE their expiration date, it will ADD 1 year to their original expiration date (for example: if a membership is set to expire on May 1st, 2024 and it's renewed before May 1st - it will add an additional year to the expiration date, making the new expiration May 1st, 2025!
  • We are going green - moving to digital membership cards! (Current members that have physical cards will still be able to use them until their renewal date, then they will need to transition over to a digital card)
  • The individual membership price has been reduced from $85 --> $65
  • We've added two new membership categories: Zoo for Two & Partners in Conservation
  • Checkout the comparison chart below!
