Member Benefits

Unlimited admission

The universe is boundless, and so is your annual membership. That’s right! There are no blackout dates for a full year. How many stars are in the cosmos? Lots. How many times can you visit in a year? Also lots.

Access to THREE awesome campuses!

So you find yourself in Newport Beach? Orange County? Or LA? And you have a hankering to get your science on? Sweet! You absolutely can. And that’s at any of our three locations. Just show your membership card and you’re inside savoring science.

Discounted guest tickets

Non-member guests joining you? Everyone adores science. And four people in your science-adoring group will like getting in for a discounted admission price. That price? It’s $10 per person.

FREE or discounted admission to 300+ ASTC Science Centers

Do you like ATSC Science Centers, travel, and saving money? You’re in luck. As a member of an institution participating in the ASTC Travel Passport Program, you are eligible for benefits such as free GENERAL ADMISSION when you travel outside of your local area (science centers and museums within 90 miles of the Cube are excluded). These benefits do not include free or discounted admission to special exhibits, planetarium and larger-screen theater presentations, nor do they include museum store discounts and other benefits associated with museum membership unless stated otherwise.
