Partner Zoos

Below is a current list of zoos and aquariums that offer NC Zoo Society members free or discounted admission. To enjoy these benefits, 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 two (2) adults (the named adults on the membership card) and two (2) children.

The "plus" benefit of bringing in a free guest on a Companion, Family-, or Grandparent-Plus membership (or higher membership level) 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.
