    The National Zoo in D.C. receives its money from public funds. Most zoos are supported by the city, town, or statein which they are located. Some are supported by zoological foundations, subscription of members, entrance fees, and annual civic subsidies.

    Any organization that receives public funding from the government are in some way being funded through tax payer money.  Taxes are how the government gets it’s money.  Senators, congressman, all public officials, and public buildings are funded by tax payer money.  As stated the National Zoo in D.C. is a public establishment like all of the Smithsonian Museums.  They do not charge an entrance fee.
