Memberships

A Buffalo Zoo membership: unlimited visits with unlimited memories. Visit as often as you like and your admission is absolutely free! Due to capacity limits, all members are still required to reserve their tickets prior to visiting.

As an added benefit, take advantage of 50% off admission at a number of participating AZA zoos and aquariums. Click our BENEFITS tab to the left (or below on mobile) to see the full list of membership benefits.

For memberships purchased online, please allow up to three weeks for processing. Looking to visit sooner than that? You can use the order number from the confirmation email you received following your purchase, and present your order confirmation email as proof of membership when visiting. Your membership card(s) will be mailed to you when your application has been processed. Need all of your membership materials immediately? Buy your membership at our admission gate, Friday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (winter hours), and it will become effective right away.
