ITA. It paid for itself on the first visit for us....

also if you opt for the NY Botanical Garden membership, you get to skip the line at the NY Botanical Gardens Train Show - which in the freezing cold is worth every penny.

Re: annual pass to zoos/museums

do you mind me asking how many times you go to each in a given year?

Re: annual pass to zoos/museums

zoo. 2-3 times
aquarium about 2 times.

But I also work on weekends so it has been easy.

The parking for both is $13

Entrance to bronx zoo is about $27 for the whole attractions (gorilla and butterfly and monorail are NOT included in the basic price entry).

The membership we have is $154. That included 4 free parking passes (valued at $13 each). You need parking passes for both the bronx zoo and NY aquarium. It includes 2 adults and all the kids you have. Full access (minus camel ride) to all the attraction (including the bug caroussel at the bronx zoo). 10% off on the food and souvenirs. The food is really decent. They have milk, fruits and yogurts too.

We have the Bronx zoo pass. It includes the Bronx zoo, central park, queens, and prospect park zoos, as well as, the NY aquarium. I personally love it and get much more than my money's worth. It is definitely worth it if you go 2 times a year to the zoo and one other place since they are expensive.

We take a lot of advantage of ours -

We just renewed ours and have gone

Queens Zoo 2 times
NY Aquarium 1 time

We plan to do the Bronx zoo this weekend and again later this month for Boo at the Zoo.

Last year we went about 10-11 times to the Bronx zoo, 3 times to the aquarium, 2 times to the Queens zoo and once to the central park zoo.

Honestly, I try to use it more often since we have it so it is a free day for us. We get the unlimited attractions and parking pass.

If you have a Bank of America Card (credit or debit) you can get into the Bronx Zoo, the NY Aquarium and the LI children's museum for free the first full weekend of each month.

You can find more info here

Re: annual pass to zoos/museums

We have the Zoo/Aquarium pass, also. For museums, we have used "Museum Adventures" passes through my local library. They worked out so well this summer... and totally free! Check out your local library for a similar program.

Well worth it!

We also belong to the LICM which is $30pp so if you go 3 times over the year it pays off.
