Michigan Museums, Gardens & Zoos With Reciprocal Membership Agreements

by Kristine F

 

If you have a local membership, to a museum or zoo for example, we want to help you know about a fantastic benefit that may come with that membership.

Many museums, zoos, gardens and arboretums across the state (and country) have a reciprocal agreement that allows free or discounted admission to specific attractions with a purchased membership to one of the participating attractions across the state or country. So, for the price of one membership, your family could have the opportunity to explore many different attractions for little or no additional cost! What a great way to maximize the benefits of the membership that you have already paid for!

Before you take advantage of this awesome membership benefit, always call to confirm exactly what the reciprocal membership benefits are and which attractions are participating, as this can change without notice, and be sure to check for any exclusions that you would need to know about ahead of time.

Don’t forget to take your membership cards and identification with you and have a great time exploring!
