Visit other science centers or museums—for free!

Join the savviest of science-loving families and adults and get free admission at science centers and museums around the world.


First, purchase a Discovery Science Center Membership.  This will automatically enroll you in the ASTC Passport Program. 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 Discovery Science Center Membership card.

In addition to Passport Program privileges, purchasing a Discovery Science Center Membership will include:

  • Invitations to members’ nights, exhibit openings, and special events
  • Unlimited admission to the science center or museum all year
  • Discounts at the Launch Pad Science store
  • Free subscriptions to the museum newsletter and much more.
