Association of Zoos & Aquariums Reciprocity Program

Get discounted admission to zoos and aquariums across the country with a Brevard Zoo membership

By Alison Ellis February 15, 2024

The Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida is one of my favorite nearby places to take my kids. This is the second year we have had an annual membership, and we get a lot of use out of it. The Brevard Zoo has it all - a splash pad, playground, amazing animals, a small train ride, animal encounters, and more! 

One of the perks of Brevard Zoo membership is being a part of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums reciprocity program. Members receive a 50% discount on admission to zoos that are a part of the program. 

One thing to keep in mind: always call ahead! There are some exceptions to the program (such as zoos that are close to each other), so make sure you always call the zoo or aquarium you plan to visit to find out their current policies regarding reciprocal admissions. 

The zoos and aquariums listed for Florida are as follows: Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens, Brevard Zoo, Zoo Miami, SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine Aquarium, St. Augustine Alligator Farm,  ZooTampa at Lowry Park, The Florida Aquarium, and Palm Beach Zoo.

We're hoping to visit at least one of these zoos at discounted admission this year. I hope that your family can take advantage of this reciprocal program as well! Please remember to call ahead to confirm the discounted rate!
