Zoo Membership is the Best Deal in Town!

You won’t have to give up much of the money you’ve squirreled away in order to become a member of the Lake Superior Zoo. Family and Grandparent memberships are just $65.  You read that right- just sixty five dollars.

Not only do families get free and unlimited general admission to the zoo for one full year, they also qualify for

  • Free admission at over 350 Association of Science – Technology Centers (ASTC) science centers and museums, including Duluth Children’s Museum, Science Museum of Minnesota, and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago.   A current list of ASTC science centers and museums can be found at: http://astc.org/members/passlist_about.htm
  • Free or reduced admission to over 150 Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) partnering zoos and aquariums, including the Great Lakes Aquarium and the Minnesota Zoo.  A current list of partnering AZA zoos and aquariums can be found at: http://www.lszooduluth.org/visit/membership/reciprocal-list/

Use your fingers, fins, hooves and toes to count them up!  That’s a super-ginormous deal on over 500 exciting places to visit!

NOTE: For the ASTC Travel Passport Program, some local restrictions may apply.  Contact your local participating science center or museum for more information.  At this time, the Duluth Children’s Museum does not have any local restrictions.  For the AZA Reciprocal Program, most zoos limit the free/discounted admissions to a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children per family membership.  Please check prior to your visit.
