HOURS:
10AM - 5PM, ADVANCE TICKETS REQUIRED

Annual Passes

In order to protect you and your family and to keep our animals safe and healthy, we have implemented a timed entry process with a limited number of visitors entering each hour. This means that purchasing a membership does not guarantee you will be able to come visit the zoo always at your preferred day and time. While there may be general admission tickets available, that may not mean membership slots are available for those same dates and times. General admission tickets are available in order to give people who may not be able to afford a membership a chance to visit. We open up dates and time slots for members at least one week in advance and we hope to host more member nights when the temperatures are cooler.

We appreciate your patience and support as we move through these challenging times together. Please keep in mind that it only takes 3 visits to the zoo for a family of 4 to save money with a Friends of Zoo Boise membership – our lions think that’s a roarin’ good deal!

Please visit https://zooboise.org/online-ticketing/ for more information on our new guidelines and to reserve your tickets. Thank you for your support. We can’t wait to welcome you back to the zoo – our staff and the animals have missed you!
