New Member BenefitsOctober 31, 2018 2:05 pm
Discovery Lab is now officially a member of the Association of Science and Technology (ASTC) Passport Program, meaning that your membership is accepted at other participating ASTC Passport museums!
Discovery Lab memberships make great holiday or birthday gifts, and this year these gifts will take your loved ones even further, with access to science museums across the country.
What science museums will honor my Discovery Lab membership?
You can see the full list of ASTC Passport participant museums across the country and their policies at http://www.astc.org/passport/.
Before you travel, it is always a good idea to check the ASTC website for participating museums or even call ahead to verify that your membership will be honored!
Will my membership be honored at Amazeum or Science Museum Oklahoma?
As part of the ASTC Passport program, the participating museum you are visiting has the prerogative to check your home address on your ID to be sure that you live more than 90 miles (“as the crow flies”) to be eligible for the membership benefit. If you live within 90 miles of the participating museum you are visiting, it is up to that museum’s policy on distances.
At Amazeum, individuals covered by your membership, up to five individuals, will be admitted with a valid Discovery Lab membership card.
At Science Museum Oklahoma, individuals covered by your membership, up to two adults (ages 13 and up) and two children (ages 3-12), will be admitted with a valid Discovery Lab membership card and matching photo ID. It is SMO’s policy to check the address on your ID to be sure you are more than 90 miles away for the benefit. (Please note that some addresses in Tulsa will be within 90 miles and it is SMO’s prerogative to not honor the benefit in this case.)
Again, it is always a good idea to call ahead and confirm that your membership will be honored.
Where is ASTC listed on my Discovery Lab membership card?
If you have an existing printed membership card, we can add the ASTC sticker to your membership card during your next visit to the museum—just ask at the front desk! Future printed cards will include ASTC on the back of the card. If you utilize Discovery Lab’s digital membership card, you can find the ASTC information listed under “my membership benefits”.
If you encounter any difficulties utilizing your membership at other participant ASTC passport museums, you can always ask them to call Discovery Lab to verify your membership over the phone.
