Hello,
I just bought a house in Fort Worth and I'm very interested in a lot of things around here.
I'd like to spend a lot of time with my children in all the park, museum, zoo... but the problem at the end is $$$$$
I gonna take a membership card at the zoo for a year...
Do you know if it exists something, a pass or a unique membership card for different museums.
What is fun and free for the kids around here ?
Thanks
Sophie

Each place you mention has a membership that will pay for itself with just a couple of visits. However, if you want something that will bring more varied benefits, you might enjoy the Press Pass from the Star Telegram. To get it you pay for a full 6 months or 12 month subscription in full. They have special events periodically that may give you free entrance or nicely discounted entrance.
I've taken my kids to the Science Museum and the Zoo for free in the past. You can usually get a couple free tickets to specificTexas Rangers games and other sporting events at different times.
There are also dining discounts at many places to eat and things like car wash discounts too on a daily basis.
Just check their website for full details.

Check out the Fort Worth Public Library...you can "check out" passes to different places in the metroplex. Of course, I haven't used one since last summer...so, hopefully they still have this service available.

We visit the Summerglen Branch @ Basswood & North Beach Street.

sometimes the schools themselves get special passes to activities that are passed on to students...like discounts

the press pass allows 2 for 1 movies on certain days for certain movie chains--not the first run movies but usually a couple of weeks later...

We got a family pass to the Science and History museum. Our kids are 10, 8, 4 and almost 2 and love it. It is $75/yr for a family, half of the zoos pass price. The San Antonio family zoo pass was only $56 and here for our whole family it would be about $150. So we'd love to go, but haven't yet. I did hear that they have 1/2 price at the zoo on Wednesdays though.

Arctgal, we go to the same library. Thanks, I'll have to check into that!
