ASTC Travel Passport Program
Exploration Place participates in the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Travel Passport Program. Our members can use their membership card for free or discounted admission to over 300 science centers and museums worldwide. In addition, members of institutions that participate in these reciprocity programs can visit us for free! Please note that any member discounts on programs, camps, products and services are for Exploration Place members and as such, ASTC Travel Passport guests are excluded from these benefits.
Exploration Place is honored to participate in the Blue Star Museums program, which offers free admission to active military personnel and their families from Armed Forces Day through Labor Day.
