Partner Zoos and Aquariums

Below is a current list of zoos and aquariums that offer NC Zoo Society members free or discounted admission. To enjoy these benefit, you must present your membership card and a photo identification card when you visit the reciprocating facility.

Most reciprocating institutions honor NC Zoo Society family or higher membership levels by admitting 2 adults (the named adults on the membership card) and 2 children.

The "plus" benefit of bringing in a free guest on an Individual- or Family - Plus membership (or higher membership levels) is NOT honored by reciprocating institutions.

PLEASE NOTE: We update this list regularly; however, sometimes member zoos change their policies without notifying us. To verify your benefits, please call an institution before you visit to confirm its current admission policies.
