Reciprocal Zoos

Cleveland Zoological Society members enjoy discounted admission to many other zoos in North America – a great benefit for travelers.

We participate in reciprocity with other zoos at a 50% admission discount.

TOP TIPS for Enjoying a Reciprocal Zoo Visit

  • Your membership card and photo ID are always required to take advantage of reciprocal benefits.
  • Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will recognize two adults and up to two children as reciprocal benefits for other zoo’s members. Additional tickets will be at regular admission prices.
  • Contact the zoo you plan to visit in advance to confirm membership level and admission information.
  • The accredited zoos and aquariums listed here will honor your Cleveland Zoological Society membership during regular operating hours.
  • The zoos on the list below may or may not define a reciprocal family membership as two adults and two children. Guest admission may not be covered. Call the destination zoo in advance for details.
  • Reciprocity is subject to change.
