One of the benefits of becoming a member of your local AZA zoo or aquarium is reciprocal admission to any of the other AZA member zoos and aquariums that participate in the Reciprocal Admissions Program.

The Program covers admission to the main facility on normal operating days and hours and may exclude exhibits or events requiring an additional fee.

Not all AZA institutions participate in the Reciprocal Admissions Program. Also note that participating AZA institutions located in close geographic proximity to each other are not required to offer free admission to each other's members in order to participate in this program.* Please be sure and call ahead BEFORE you visit!

Note: Zoo admission policies are subject to change. Some zoos are not open all year. Reciprocity applies only for admission to main facility on normal operating days/hours and may exclude exhibits or events requiring an additional fee. Membership categories, parking fees, guest privileges and gift shop discount vary among institutions.

We reciprocate to the extent of each individual zoos rules.

 

Please note: The Milwaukee County Zoo, the Brookfield Zoo, and the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago do not honor this reciprocal arangement.
