The Aquarium of the Pacific, the Natural History Museum and the L.A. Zoo have partnered to create the Nature Pass, a one-of-a-kind ticket package that offers discounted admission to these three local institutions.
With a Nature Pass, families can save money while learning about animals that existed in the past and those that live today – on land, in water and in the air. You can see the Zoo’s cute baby animals, touch one of the Aquarium’s sharks and marvel at the Natural History Museum’s antiquities. Parents can save around $10 by purchasing the Nature Pass $50 adult ticket and about $5 per kid with the $31 child ticket (for ages 11 and younger).
Passes are good for one year from the day they are purchased, for one visit to each venue, so they can be used for favorite holiday events such as the Aquarium’s Scarium of the Pacific and the Zoo’s Reindeer Romp. There is also the option of upgrading your Nature Pass. To add a visit to the NHM’s “Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs” exhibit (running through Oct. 2) is an additional $10 for adults and $5 for children, while the Zoo’s “Dinosaurs Unextinct” exhibit (that ends Oct. 31) costs $5 more per person.
The Nature Pass, which is available now, can be purchased on the Aquarium of the Pacific’s website or at any of the three institutions.
