Welcome to



As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, most reciprocal locations listed are no longer participating in the reciprocal program.

These cultural resource centers withdrew from the program because they suffered severe economic losses when they closed their doors to visitors as a way to help stop the spread of the virus.

Currently, the North Carolina Aquariums are not participating in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, American Alliance of Museums, or The Association of Science and Technology Centers reciprocal programs. North Carolina Aquarium Society members should not expect any other institution to grant them discounted admission. Members of organizations other than the North Carolina Aquarium Society will not be granted discounted admission.*

*The North Carolina Zoo and North Carolina Aquariums are participating in a reciprocal program during this time. For more information on how to reserve tickets with the NC Zoo and to see a complete listing of all reciprocal facilities see the list below.
