Free or reduced admission to other zoos and aquariums (reciprocity) is another benefit of Jacksonville Zoo membership. This year’s Reciprocity Program includes more than 150 zoos and aquariums and applies to admission fees only.
The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens will offer a 50% discount off admission for up to 2 adults and 2 children to members of reciprocating zoos and aquariums, unless a lesser discount is listed. Zoo Memberships that are valid for fewer than 2 adults and 2 children at the Member’s home zoo, will only be honored for the number of people covered at the home zoo. The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens does not extend reciprocal benefits to guests or “pluses” of visiting zoo members. A valid zoo membership card and photo ID are required to purchase reciprocal admission tickets. Please visit the Guest Relations Office to purchase reciprocal admission tickets.
Zoos and Aquariums listed at 100% or 50% offer 50% discount off admission for Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Members for up to 2 adults and 2 children.
Zoos and Aquariums listed at 50% offer a 50% discount off admission for Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Members for up to 2 adults and 2 children.
Zoos and Aquariums listed as Free always offer free admission but may charge select attractions or services. Not all Free Zoos participate in the Reciprocal program, please call and confirm that you are a member of a reciprocating facility before your visit the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.
Please note: Occasionally, zoos decide they no longer wish to be a part of the reciprocal program, after the list has been printed. If you plan to visit any of these zoos, please contact them to confirm that they will honor your Jacksonville Zoo membership.
Reciprocal Lists change each year on January 1 and are valid though December 31 of that year.
