Reciprocal Zoo List

Baird's Tapir

Zoo Pass members get free regular admission to the Milwaukee County Zoo and free or discounted admission to more than 150 other zoos and aquariums! The Milwaukee County Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA), and the Zoo offers free or discounted admission to members of other AZA-accredited institutions that reciprocate with free or discounted admission for our members.

See a current list of reciprocating zoos and aquariums below. Changes are made each year, so remember to refer back to this page before you visit another zoo or aquarium. Most institutions limit reciprocal admission to two (2) adults and two (2) children, and reciprocity does not include free or discounted parking. You must have your membership card and photo I.D. with you to receive reciprocal admission.

Important Note about Reciprocation with the Shedd Aquarium: The Shedd limits reciprocation to 50% off of two (2) tickets per membership, and tickets need to be reserved online in advance.

Reciprocity is subject to change, and most institutions do not honor reciprocity during special events. Reciprocal benefits for corporate members may also vary. Please contact the institution in advance to verify reciprocity for the day you plan to attend.

If a reciprocal institution charges you regular admission fees, please keep your receipt and promptly contact our membership office at 414-258-2333. Although we cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed, we will contact the institution to request a refund on your behalf.

Some institutions, including the Brookfield Zoo (Chicago), San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, and all Sea World locations, choose not to participate in the AZA reciprocity program. Please also note that the Milwaukee County Zoo does not reciprocate with zoos located in close geographic proximity to our zoo, such as the Henry Vilas Zoo (Madison), Lincoln Park Zoo (Chicago), N.E.W. Zoo (Green Bay) and Racine Zoological Gardens.
