Membership Discounts at other participating Zoos and Aquariums

As you vacation this summer, don’t forget to take your San Antonio Zoo membership card with you!  Your membership is accepted at more then 150 zoos and aquariums nationwide, and most of them will give you a 50% discount on admission.

Important Note:  Zoo databases are not shared or linked and other facilities will not be able to verify your membership.  Zoo policies vary on how many are covered by a family membership and discounts normally only apply to regular operating hours. To ensure quick and easy entry, please be sure to have your membership card and photo ID ready when you arrive at another facility.  If you have questions regarding the amount of the discount and what it applies to, please contact the facility you are planning to visit in advance.  A full list of participating facilities can be found at http://www.aza.org/reciprocity/
