Free admission to Albuquerque Bio Park for kids this summer

Update 5/31: Cancelled! Sorry guys, it turns out that although this information was still showing on the ABQ BioPark website on May 30 when I posted this deal, I’ve learned from the press office people that they’ve discontinued the “Summer Mondays” discount that has been running for several years. They will NOT be offering free admission to kids on Mondays.

The BioPark has now removed that info from their FAQ page. I’ll leave this post up for a couple of days as a correction before removing it from ABQ on the Cheap.

Here’s a great way for children to enjoy free admission to Albuquerque BioPark Zoo, Aquarium, and Botanic Garden without breaking the bank this summer 2013!

Every Monday starting Monday June 3 through Monday August 26, 2013 , one paying adult can bring up to FOUR children into the ABQ BioPark Zoo (formerly the Rio Grande Zoo) or to the Albuquerque Aquarium and Botanic Garden with FREE admission to Albuqurque BioPark   for the kids.  The admission for the paying adult is $9 for New Mexico residents with ID, and $12.50 for out-of-state visitors. If you bring four kids with you, that adds up to a saving of $16. What a bargain!

This is a great summer deal for a family outing. Or use it for a playdate for the young ones. Or just turn up on the Mondays if you’d like to take advantage of an affordable option for visiting the zoo or aquarium. Note that the deal only applies to the admission price, and a child admission is for ages 3 to 12.

The offer (which is tucked away in the BioPark’s FAQ under “School Field Trips and Group Scheduling”!) begins the Monday after Memorial Day and ends the Monday before Labor Day.

Children aged under 3 always get free admission to Albuquerque BioPark, and of course the BioPark’s Tingley Beach is also always free for everyone.

Mama’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow, the zoo tomorrow, the zoo tomorrow… Let’s all sing along and enjoy this great summer deal that gives parents and others offering child care a price break this summer!

    Thanks Ruby – I heard from the marketing people too that although the info was still on the ABQ BioPark website at time of posting, they have indeed discontinued the kids’ deal for 2013 and they have now removed it from the BioPark website. The post has been updated with a correction for our many email subscribers who may still be clicking through from their email to find out about the deal. I hope you have a good summer – I always feel for the cashiers who sit out in heat all day!

    This a information is incorrect and last year was the end of that deal. I am an employee at the Biopark and would appreciate it if you called, verify, then take all misinformation off of your site. This would greatly help the Biopark cashiers who will eventually deal with this problem. Thank you
