Join For Year-Round Fun!

An Indianapolis Zoo membership is your best value for year-round fun.  You can enjoy the Zoo at your convenience, whether for the day, an afternoon, or even an hour. With a membership, it’s all up to you! Zoo members are part of the Zoo family. Whether you’re thinking of starting your membership, ready to renew or interested in upgrading, we’re here to help.

Discover the excitement of the underwater world in the Dolphin Dome, the beauty of the four seasons in Forests, the majesty of the African Plains, the thrill of mingling with flamingos in Encounters, fluttering with butterflies in the White River Gardens and getting mobbed by meerkats in Deserts.

Please contact us below or call 317-630-2046 any time you have questions or want to chat about how to start your Membership.

If you are a new or lapsed member wishing to purchase your membership at the Front Gate, you will need to pay for parking on your visit. All subsequent visits will include free member parking. Take full advantage of your member benefits and join online! Make the most of your next visit.

We'd love to hear from you!
