Annual Memberships

Give an online gift membership for your household or a family that is near and dear to you. Similar to a generic gift card, the online gift membership card is purchased for a specific membership price level (e.g. household membership).

Your online gift membership card will be emailed to you as a PDF that you can print out or forward to the recipient via email. The recipient redeems the value of their online gift membership at Guest Services, located at the main entrance of the Zoo, on their first visit to receive their permanent membership card and begin enjoying 12 months of member benefits.

Please note: If membership prices increase, the remaining amount owed must be paid with a different tender.

When purchasing an Online Gift Membership, you are allowing your recipient to decide when their memberships begins.

Gift memberships not purchased online begin on the date of purchase and are valid for new members or will add 12 months to the current membership expiration date for renewal members. If you prefer to purchase your gift in person, call (402) 733-8401 or visit the Zoo’s Guest Services Office. The office is open from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. daily from November 1 - March 14. The office is closed on Christmas Day.

Gift memberships purchased by phone can be mailed to the gift buyer or gift recipient. Gift Memberships purchased at the Guest Services Office will be given to the gift buyer at time of purchase.
