Membership Categories & Prices:
Please note: The "additional guests" feature of the Plus membership(s) are valid at Dakota Zoo. At reciprocal zoos it is subject to that facility's admission policy.
Most reciprocal zoos WILL NOT admit any additional guests and will recognize this membership as a FAMILY or GRANDPARENT membership. (ie. the two named adults and dependent children/grandchildren.)
To avoid any unplanned surprises, we suggest you call ahead to clarify admission policy.
Please note that the two named adults or grandparents must reside in the same household. None of our memberships are for use as shared memberships among multiple households.
