ASTC Passport Program
 
Science centers inspire curiosity and support lifelong learning about science.

Visit a science center or museum—for free!
Join the savviest of science-loving families and adults and get free admission at science centers and museums around the world.

How? First join your local participating science center or museum. Then check the ASTC Passport Program list to find other participating museums—now more than 300 in over a dozen countries. Then get ready to go!

There are a couple of caveats—the program doesn’t apply to centers within a 90-mile radius of home. In addition, the free general admission often does not include tickets to things such as special exhibitions, giant-screen theaters, planetarium shows or simulators.

Also, to get free admission at an out-of-town science center or museum, you’ll need to bring your membership card from your own science center or museum.

In addition to Passport Program privileges, joining your hometown science center may offer many other benefits, such as:

  • invitations to members' nights, exhibit openings, and special events
  • unlimited admission to the science center or museum all year
  • discounts on science camps, education programs, activities, and field trips
  • discounts at the museum store
  • free subscriptions to the museum newsletter and much more.

Call your local science center or museum and become a member today.
