Reciprocal Program

CuriOdyssey Members

As a member of CuriOdyssey, you can receive free or discounted admission at other science and wildlife centers.

All CuriOdyssey members get access to the reciprocity programs of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC), as well as any independent California agreements. We recommend the use of our California Reciprocity List for any institutions in California, as both the AZA and ASTC may have geographical restrictions and not all member organizations participate in the reciprocal membership programs.

Family Plus, Advocate, Innovators Circle, and Director’s Circle members also get access to the reciprocity program of the Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM). This benefit grants admission for at least one member and one guest at the host institution’s member general admission price, as well as member pricing in shop (if applicable). Please note that restrictions may apply to events, lectures, and exhibitions, or based on geographical proximity to CuriOdyssey.

A few things to remember when you travel:

  • Please bring a photo ID and your CuriOdyssey membership card when visiting any of our reciprocal partners. Your digital membership card is valid, though you may need to show the details on the “back side” of the card.
    • The different methods of installing your card have different processes for viewing details. Apple Pay: click the three-dot icon on the top right, WalletPasses: click the “i” icon on bottom right, GPay: click the “Details” button on the bottom center.
  • The number of visitors admitted with your membership varies with each institution. Other features of their equivalent membership, such as store discounts and parking fees, may not be included with your admission.
  • Lists are subject to change without notice. We recommend calling each facility prior to your visit to be sure of your reciprocal benefits with CuriOdyssey membership.

Members at Reciprocal Institutions

We ask that all guests with membership at a reciprocal institution call ahead to confirm status as geographic restrictions may apply. Member card and photo ID are required. Unless otherwise specified, discounts do not apply at special events or in the CuriOdyssey Shop.

Discount tickets are not sold in advance, reciprocal tickets can be purchased at the door on all open days from 10am until the last ticket sales at 4pm. Please see below for guidelines related to your program; if you have any questions about discount tickets please email [email protected].

AZA: All AZA members receive a 50% discount on general admission matching your membership up to two member adults and four member children.

ASTC: If member residence and reciprocal institution is outside of 90 miles from CuriOdyssey, members receive 100% discount on general admission matching your membership up to two member adults and four member children. Proof of residence is required.

ROAM: All ROAM members receive free admission for one member and one guest as well as member discount in the CuriOdyssey Shop.

Independent California Agreement (including local ASTC): If your institution participates, members receive the discount listed in the “Reciprocity Agreement” column on the California Reciprocity List matching your membership up to two member adults and four member children. This applies if your home institution is highlighted in purple or it is listed but does not participate in any of our reciprocal programs. ASTC members please note that not all local institutions participate. Residential geographic restrictions do not apply.
