Kentucky House Bill 487, effective July 1, 2018, required us to add a 6% sales tax to Zoo admission, special events, Zoo memberships and other select items. If you have any general questions regarding KY sales tax, we encourage you to contact the KY Department of Revenue or visit their website for common questions.

Kentucky House Bill 354, effective March 26, 2019 rescinded this tax.

We are required to follow applicable laws and regulations as they relate to sales tax.  For taxable products, you will see the notation (plus tax). The Louisville Zoo is a non-profit organization.


Questions regarding specific taxable items at the Zoo can be directed to the cashier or staff person assisting you with your transaction or by emailing relevant departments:
