Pacific Science Center Membership

Pacific Science Center’s onsite operations are currently very limited due to COVID-19. We expect that onsite operations will continue to be very limited during the rest of 2020 and into 2021. As a result, we are suspending membership sales during this time. If you are interested in purchasing or renewing a membership, please fill out the form below for an exclusive deal once PacSci has a reopening date.

Current Member Update

Renewal sales will not be available during the remainder of our limited operations period. PacSci will extend all memberships by the amount of time that we are closed for general admission. For example, if a membership had one month remaining at the time of PacSci’s closure, a one-month extension past our reopening date will be applied. During this time you will still be able to use your ASTC Reciprocal Admission benefit.*

Curiosity Never Closes

Science and an informed public are humanity’s best hopes in addressing COVID-19, climate change, and other threats. PacSci is taking this opportunity to innovate with a steadfast commitment to serving the community. We will continue to ignite curiosity and fuel a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking.

PacSci is currently offering Virtual Field Trip experiences for grades PreK-8, Curiosity at Home content with hands-on STEM activities for grades PreK – 8, and virtual Science in the City talks. In addition, we are prototyping other programming, including Curiosity Breaks and Private Premium Experiences. We are also using this time to re-envision our programming, refine our business model, and focus on renewing our facility. Share any feedback you have on our virtual programs and how we can best serve the community during this time by contacting feedback@pacsci.org.

If you would like to support our work during our closure, please consider donating today. We appreciate the continued support of our members.

*Exclusions: (1) science centers & museums located within 90 miles (measured “as the crow flies”) of Pacific Science Center; (2) science centers and museums located within 90 miles of your residence (measured “as the crow flies”). Local restrictions apply. Learn more and view a full list of ASTC Travel Passport Program institutions.
