Member Specials

Special offers change periodically and are not guaranteed past any dates/times listed below. Many thanks to our partners for making some of these program available to Louisville Zoo members.

Family A or B Membership – $50 for SNAP participants

New Offer! The Zoo is offering a special discount to those participating in SNAP with a deeply discounted Family level membership.  Membership must be purchased in person at the Zoo with a valid SNAP card and matching photo ID at the time of purchase. Discount cannot be applied retroactively and may not be combined with any other offers and is not valid for any other levels or gift membership purchase. The Purchaser must be one of the named adults on the membership.

During our initial reopening phase as we work to manage attendance and encourage social distancing, we ask those interested in this special discount to visit the Zoo’s Membership Window #9 between 8:30-9:30a.m. and a Zoo team member will assist you in setting up your membership.  New members purchasing a membership will be able to attend the Zoo that day without a prior reservation. As we work to follow strict health and safety regulations to ensure the health of our staff, guests and animals, visits after the initial day of the membership must be reserved online. Click here for more information.  If you have any questions, please call (502) 459-2287.


In addition to the standard reciprocal discount we share with Cincinnati Zoo, we are pleased to add discounted tickets to PNC Festival of Lights at Cincinnati Zoo. All active Louisville Zoo members enjoy a 50% discount on admission during their Festival of Lights event.
