Become a Member and Join the Fun!

Membership enables you and your children to enjoy a fun-filled year of new hands-on experiences anytime you choose!  Membership has great benefits, including unlimited visits; discounts on classes and programs, Discovery Store purchases, birthday parties, and museum rentals; and discounts at participating area businesses.  

By joining at the Family or Premier membership level, you can enjoy half-priced admission for up to 6 people at 200+ museums nationwide (16 in New England) as part of the Association of Children's Museums reciprocal membership program. The program is administered by the Association of Children's Museums and the benefit details and list of participating museums may change.
