Gift Memberships

Gift memberships are currently not available for purchase online. To purchase a gift membership, please call 402.475.6741 ext. 0 Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. or visit the Zoo's gift shop open daily through December 23 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

We highly recommend purchasing a gift card in the amount of the membership and giving the gift card as the gift. This will allow the recipient to turn it in for a membership whenever they would like and that action will start the year long membership. However, if you give the actual membership it will expire one year from the purchase date even if it is not given to the member right away.
