Pacific Science Center Membership

We are excited about the future of PacSci and our membership program. We are actively exploring how Pacific Science Center can best serve the community, both at our facility and through our outreach programs. This is a process of renewal, in which we are working to improve the experiences we offer at PacSci while strengthening the long-term financial sustainability of our organization. Just as science continually evolves, so too will our programs and operations – including membership. 

As a result, we have suspended membership sales during this time. If you are interested in purchasing or renewing a membership, please fill out the form below for an exclusive future deal!

Current Member Update

We are so grateful for the support our members have given us during this challenging time .  

Opportunities to use membership benefits will be limited during our phased renewal period. As we explore a new, enhanced, membership program, we will continue to provide members with opportunities for discounts and exclusive access for the programs currently available. These include a discount on our world premier hockey exhibition, summer camp savings and member-exclusive virtual programming. Members can also continue to use their ASTC reciprocal admission benefits at qualifying institutions across the country.*

Renewal sales are not available at this time. PacSci will apply the value remaining on each membership at the time of our closure to the general public to our new membership benefits. For example, if a membership had one month remaining at the time of PacSci’s facility closure in March 2020, one-month of value will remain to be applied toward member benefits going forward.

Curiosity Never Closes

We hope our members will continue experience PacSci through Virtual Field Trips, Curiosity at Home, Science in the City, and other online content through our website.

We are grateful for your support of our journey. Tens of thousands of fans of all ages have participated in the new virtual education programming we’ve provided in the last year. Longtime and new donors supported our mission so we could reach this point in our renewal. We are excited to continue to serve our community—virtually and in person—and to ignite curiosity near and far.

PacSci is almost entirely dependent on support from our community, including individual donors and corporate partnerships. Now, more than ever, we need you to ensure that Curiosity Never Closes! If you would like to support our work during our closure, please consider donating today.
