Museums for All Admissions Program

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is committed to providing experiences that connect and engage our guests to wildlife. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to come nose-to-snout with amazing animals and learn about our natural world. We seek to be inclusive to all members of our community, regardless of economic status or other limiting factors. The Living Desert is dedicated to providing accessibility to low-income children and families.

The Living Desert is proud to have two programs designed to make sure everyone can experience the best museums and cultural attractions, at a low, affordable price.
