Important Update

Given local responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, many ASTC members are altering their operations or are fully closed to the public. Please check each institution’s website or call them for more information about their operations status, including their online programming and virtual engagement and learning opportunities.

Before You Travel

  1. Check for exclusions. Make sure the science center or museum you are visiting is not located within 90 miles of either your home residence or the science center or museum that you belong to. This distance is measured as a linear radius, not driving distance.
  2. Review the family admittance policy of the venue that you intend to visit. Call before you visit to confirm your Passport Program benefits.
  3. Pack your ID (or other proof of residence). Admissions staff reserve the right to request proof of residence for benefits to apply. Passport Program venues requesting proof of residence are marked by “Proof of Residence Required”.
  4. Pack your membership card. Passport Program venues are not required to grant benefits to visitors who forget their cards. There is no universal database with all Passport visitors’ member data for admission staff to reference. Some venues will allow you to call your home institution to confirm your membership, but they are under no obligation to do so.
    • Lost your card? Please contact your home science center or museum. ASTC does not issue or administer membership cards.
