Ring-tailed lemurs hang out at the Oregon Zoo.

Welcome to the Oregon Zoo!

The Oregon Zoo is open 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m daily with the last reservation at 3:30 p.m. Masks are no longer required. All days and hours are subject to change. Notice: We have temporarily moved some birds off-view to help protect them against the avian influenza.Find member information here.

Online advance-purchase tickets are required

Advance online ticket reservations are required for all guests, including members. All visitors must be included in the timed reservation, including infants (age 0 to 1). Tickets are available 10 days in advance. Guests and members should arrive at the zoo within 10 minutes of their scheduled time. Zoo capacity is timed and limited. If you arrive outside of your scheduled time, you may need to wait for the next available entry time. In order to ensure entrance, your timed ticket should be purchased in advance.

For zoo members: all named members must show photo ID along with their reserved ticket when entering the zoo. Additional guests may not be substituted for named cardholder reservations. Membership cards are not required since ID numbers will be printed on the tickets. (Each named member, child or infant (age 0 to 1), or guest must have their own reservation. All children and guests must arrive with a named cardholder with a photo ID.)


Take a ride on the Oregon Zoo carousel with 18 beautifully crafted animals to choose from. The carousel opens at 10:00 a.m. and closes 15 minutes before the zoo closes.


Choo Choo! Take a step back in time aboard the historic Washington Park and Zoo Railway. This six-minute journey circles a 20-foot-high elevated trestle in the forest north of Elephant Lands — the same path the train took back in 1958 when it first opened. The train opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes 30 minutes before the zoo closes. Boarding occurs every 15 to 20 minutes.

Carousel and train tickets are available the day of your visit or in advance online as an add-on ticket to all general admission purchases and member reservations.
