Reciprocal Zoos

The Memphis Zoo  participates in the reciprocal program from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The following zoos and aquariums offer Memphis Zoo Members 50% off standard daily admission.  Please be prepared to show your current Memphis Zoo Membership card and photo ID when visiting these organizations.

If you are a current member of one of the AZA participating zoos or aquariums listed here, you receive 50% off standard daily admission to the Memphis Zoo with your membership card and photo ID.  This discount applies to the same number of members covered under your reciprocal zoo membership.

Although this list was updated in January, 2014, participating zoos and aquariums can change their policies at any time. Please confirm discount and admission details with the facility before your visit. If you have any questions about your reciprocal benefits, please contact us at 901-333-6767 or membership@memphiszoo.org.

Make sure that you read the AZA's Reciprocal Admissions Program Rules of Operation before you plan a visit to any participating institution.
