Tampa Bay SWAPtember offers FREE Admission for Members

September 22, 2017

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00am, repeating until September 30, 2017


The Tampa Bay area is home to some amazing attractions. Fun family times can be found at every turn. During the entire month of September, a few of Tampa Bay’s popular attractions are inviting you to swap membership during the month of September.

If you are a member of MOSI Tampa, The Lowry Park Zoo or The Florida Aquarium, then September may be one of your favorite months of the year. For those who have a membership, you can visit all three of these attractions for free during the month of September* in 2017 (*See info below about MOSI).

We here at have contacted each attraction and we are happy to share our Insiders Guide to seeing these Tampa attractions for SWAPtember this year.

Check out our 12 Insider Tips for a fun and family-friendly SWAPtember.

Insiders Guide to SWAPtember:

1. What is SWAPtember?

As far back as 2011 if not further, SWAPtember has given annual members of MOSI, Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium the opportunity to explore the other attractions for free during the month of September. It has been great way to help individuals and families to experience more attractions in the Tampa Bay area, without the additional cost of entry. SWAPtember is not unique to the Tampa area. Many cities across the U.S. offer similar promotions among their popular attractions. You do have to be a member of one of three attractions above to participate.

2. Not a member of MOSI TampaThe Lowry Park Zoo or The Florida Aquarium

This is the perfect time to buy a membership to one of these attractions so you can enjoy seeing all of them this year. There are many perks to being a member and if you plan on visiting more than twice a year, it pays for itself. Discounts, special event pricing, reciprocal memberships, and more can be had with an annual membership.

3. How do you get free admission?

All you have to do is show a photo ID and current membership card between September 1-30, 2017 for free admission to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo and The Florida Aquarium. MOSI Tampa is currently closed during the month of September. Don’t worry, they will still offer a form of SWAPtember when they reopen in November 2017.

4. MOSI is closed, what now?

Good question. MOSI is currently closed until November while they remodel. Since they will not be able to have SWAPtember during September, they are inviting members of The Florida Aquarium and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo to visit them for free admission from November 18-December 31, 2017.
