BPZOO members receive exclusive discounts to local eateries and businesses.

BPZOO members receive free or discounted admission to over 100 zoos and aquariums in the United States.

Please be aware, due to COVID-19 there have been admission restrictions placed on most zoos, aquariums, and museums. For this reason, many institutions have chosen to temporarily suspend their participation in the AZA’s Reciprocal Admissions program. We highly recommend you contact any institution prior to your visit to confirm their current participation status in the reciprocal program to avoid any confusion when you arrive.

“We have been visiting the zoo for many years and we have to say, you just get better and better.
We look forward to being members for many years to come. Many thanks.”

“We have been members of your zoo for years and our trip yesterday was the best so far. Many new changes were noticed, all which made the experience more enjoyable for our son. The animals were all so active and we enjoyed the education sessions with the animals. Thank you again for providing such a wonderful experience!”
