The Association of Zoos and Aquariums Reciprocal Admissions Program allows you to become a member of your local AZA-Accredited Zoo or Aquarium, and then when you travel, you can save money with free or discounted admission at other AZA-Accredited locations!
If the Zoo or Aquarium you are a member of participates at the 50% level, you can expect to save 50% at other member locations.
If your Zoo or Aquarium participates at the 100% level, you may receive up to 100% off the admission price for other 100% level locations, and you will save 50% off admission at the 50% level locations.
