Zoo Admission Tickets
    The Oregon Zoo inspires the community to respect animals and take action on behalf of the natural world. We do this by creating engaging experiences and advancing the highest levels of animal welfare, environmental literacy, and conservation science.

    We invite you to come and share in our mission with us. Purchasing your tickets online lets you skip the lines at the entrance and come enjoy the zoo sooner.

    Please note:
  • General admission tickets are not valid for concerts or other special events.
  • Tickets expire one year from date of purchase.
  • Children 2 and under are admitted free but they do require a ticket. Just ask for a free infant ticket at the scanners near the mountain goat exhibit when you present your tickets.
  • Second Tuesday, transit discount, military discount, and other bonus offers only available at the zoo ticket windows.
