Join the NC Zoo Society on the Web to Become a Member Today

Use a print out of your email receipt and a picture identification card for free admission. Just show both to the person working in the Society's Members-only, Express Entry ticket booth to enter until your membership card arrives—within about 10 days of your purchase. Please notify us if the card does not arrive by then. Use Your Membership to enjoy Special Prices on our Behind the Scenes Programs.

Free Admission to the Zoo

Your membership provides you with FREE admission to the NC Zoo and free or discounted admission to 150 other Zoos and aquariums around the country.

Membership does not provide free admission to special programs and activities that require an additional fee inside the Park (such as the carousel, the SimEx movie theater, etc.) but members may buy Combo Fun Tickets, which discount the cost of attending these special venues.
