You can get a discounted Louisville Zoo Membership for $50 if you are eligible for SNAP or WIC. It is a family membership that is usually $139. The membership is for two adults and up to 4 dependent children (or grandchildren) from the same household (ages 3-18). Admission is always free for children ages 2 and under, so they do not count toward your 4 dependents. It also includes two guest passes you can use any time your membership is valid. Your membership includes all of the standard membership benefits.

To get this discount, you need to go to the ticketing booths during normal business hours. This membership is called the Community Access Membership. Bring your valid SNAP or WIC card and matching photo ID, you will be the primary member named on the Louisville Zoo membership.
