A Family Membership provides 12 months of free admission to the North Carolina Zoo to members of a family who share the same household, as well as other benefits (click here to review all membership benefits). The free admission covers two adults in the household and their minor children (younger than 18).
A Family-Plus Membership provides the same benefits as above and, as well, allows the family to bring one guest in for free on each visit.
Those purchasing a North Carolina Zoo Society Membership online can also choose to:
- purchase "add-ons"—each add-on purchased admits one free guest on every visit
- purchase duplicate membership cards
- make an additional donation to support Zoo conservation programs, renovations or general activities
All, or nearly all, of the cost of a Family or Family-Plus Membership is tax-deductible; the estimated value of this membership is under $8 a year.
