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.
