With your zoo or museum membership, you can get into zoos and museums, worldwide, for free or for a discount! Read on to learn about Houston Reciprocal Museum Memberships.
Now that I've saved a hundred dollars in San Antonio, my first question at any ticket counter, anywhere in the country, will be... "Do you have reciprocal benefits with any Houston museums or zoo?"!
Since many Houston families have memberships to the museums or zoo, here is a guide to what you can get. And as a disclaimer, this list changes so check before you go!
Reciprocal Museum and Zoo Memberships:
- If you have a membership to the Children's Museum of Houston (Family Plus or Above), you can visit these ASTC Museums for free! This includes The DoSeum (San Antonio Children's Museum), Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, The Thinkery, the New Austin Children's Museum and museums all over Texas, the United States... and the world. Get all the details HERE.
- If you have a Family Max membership to the Houston Health Museum, you can get free admission to Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City.
- If you have a membership to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (Patron Level or Above), you can visit these Museums for free. For Supporter or Above memberships, you can also receive discounts.
- If you have a membership to the Houston Maritime Museum (at Family Level or Above), you can visit these CAMM orNARM Museums for free. This includes the Texas Seaport Museum, Art Museum of South in Corpus Christi, San Antonio Museum of Art and many more Texas and United States Museums.
- If you have a membership to the Houston Zoo, you get discounted admission to these AZA zoos and aquariums.
- If you have a membership to the Houston Museum of Natural Science, unfortunately there are no reciprocal benefits.
Other museums in Houston also seem to have Reciprocal Membership Privileges... so always ask. If you know of any other good deals for Houston museum and zoo members, let us know!

Jill, I love the idea of having a pass to attend the zoo, my children love to see live animals. We live pretty far from the nearest zoo. It seems like the next best thing would be to see the animals on a live web cam. My daughter was just mentioning that she'd love to look at a panda bear. I'm just glad that there are places to go and see these beautiful creatures. http://virginiazoo.org/animals-plants/animals/mammals/animal-cams/
