Reciprocal Admissions Program

Look for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium. This assures that you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.

A number of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums participate in the AZA Reciprocal Admissions Program. As a local member of an AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium, you may be eligible for free or discounted admission into participating AZA-accredited zoos or aquariums. You must present a valid, current zoo or aquarium membership card for admission.

Not all AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums, in the list below, participate in this program; please review our full information on the reciprocity program for more details. It's always a good idea to call BEFORE you visit. Learn more

AZA members: Please contact AZA Membership to update your listing.
