Reciprocal Zoos & Aquariums

Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo participates in a program of reciprocation with more than 150 other zoos and aquariums throughout North America.

This program is voluntary and is provided as a service to our members. Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo members receive free or discounted admission into the zoos and aquariums listed above when they show their valid Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo membership card. Extra fees or benefits, such as parking, special events, etc. are not included.

Notice: This list is updated quarterly and is subject to change without notice. Members are admitted according to the membership rules of the other zoo or aquarium, not those of Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo (i.e. if their definition of a "family membership" limits the number of children to four, then that is the number allowed in on your card). Reciprocal zoos that have free admission to the general public may offer free parking or other benefits, call them to confirm. Also, many of the listed facilities define a family as 2 Adults and 2 Children. Therefore, additional children may have to pay admission.


Here is some helpful information for Zoo members who are taking part in Swaptember:

  • 2016 dates TBD.
  • Members must have their Membership card or temporary paperwork and a photo ID to gain access to any of the Swaptember partners. If you do not have your Membership card or temporary paperwork, please contact your Membership department to get paperwork prior to coming to your visit.
  • Swaptember is not valid for special events or special exhibits.
  • Parking is not included in Swaptember. MOSI and Zoo members must pay to park at The Florida Aquarium. Aquarium and Zoo members must also pay to park at MOSI. The Zoo has free parking.
  • If someone is not listed on the MOSI or Zoo Membership, they will not receive free entry.
  • A primary Member must be present when The Florida Aquarium membership is used to gain access to a Swaptember partner.
  • Guest Passes are not honored without a primary member present.
  • Swaptember partners do not offer discounts on food or beverages and there is no discount in the gift shop(s).
