"How to Save Money with Your Wichita Museum & Zoo Memberships When You Travel"

Written by Ginny Ellis of Wichita Mom

Perhaps my favorite perk of memberships to our local zoos and museums is free or discounted reciprocal admission to others around the country. It makes trip planning a breeze and saves a lot of money! Plan a day trip or weekend getaway to hit up a couple of these spots for a fun, educational, cost effective road trip.

I’ve split the list into day trip range (three hours one way or less) and long-weekend (up to seven hours one way) destinations. There are ninety zoos or museums for the road warriors among us to enjoy with Wichita zoo and museum memberships.”
