Members enjoy reciprocity at over 150 zoos and aquariums nationwide!
Planning your visit
Members will be required to show proof of zoo or aquarium membership.
Reciprocity applies to admission to the main facility during normal operating days and hours. Reciprocity may exclude special exhibits or events requiring an additional fee.
Reciprocity does not limit the number of visits to any particular zoo or aquarium.
The number of visitors admitted with a family membership may vary depending on the zoo or aquarium visited.
Please call each individual zoo or aquarium BEFORE you visit to confirm details and restrictions!

The benefits of reciprocity are determined by each institution individually. To determine the current privileges of reciprocity at a specific institution, please download the list above. Please remember to bring your Henry Vilas Zoo membership card with you to receive benefits at other institutions.
Geographic Restrictions May Apply
The zoos and aquariums on the 2013 Reciprocal Admissions List that are located in close geographic proximity to each other are not required to offer free or discounted admission to each other's members, although they may offer an alternative discount. "Close geographic proximity" is determined by each institution.
Should you have any questions about an institution's participation due to geographic proximity, please contact the zoo or aquarium directly.
Please note: The Milwaukee Zoo does not offer free admission to the Henry Vilas Zoo's members.
