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 $80. You read that right – just eighty dollars.

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

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. We have a special local arrangement with the Duluth Children’s Museum and the Great Lakes Aquarium which offers a 50% discount on general admission to those attractions when you show your zoo membership card and ID.

NOTICE – We are now processing our memberships directly on this website — so if you are renewing your membership, the checkout process will be different and you will not have to log in to your account!
