Memberships

Every visit to the Zoo is a unique experience that awakens your senses. With a Buffalo Zoo membership you may visit the Zoo as often as you like – and your admission is absolutely FREE. Most importantly, you’ll be helping to preserve some of the world’s most precious inhabitants – our remarkable animal collection.

Please allow approximately two weeks to process your membership materials.  You may purchase your membership online and present your confirmation email to obtain your FREE admission privileges.  Permanent materials (membership cards, guest passes, parking, etc.) will be mailed to you when the application has been processed.

Need your membership materials immediately?  Our admission entrance is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. You may purchase your membership in person at our admission entrance and your membership will become effective immediately.  Depending on volume, you may retrieve your membership materials at the end of your Zoo visit by visiting our Zootique Gift Shop.
