Members of the Bay Area Discovery Museum receive a benefit that will save you money and allow your family access to hundreds of science centers and museums across the country and globe! The ASTC Passport Program* gives members free general admission to over 300 institutions located outside a 90-mile radius of your residence.  So, the next time you’re traveling outside of the Bay Area with your family, remember your ASTC Passport Program benefits and explore different science centers and museums… for free! See full list. 

*To receive Travel Passport Program benefits, members must live more than 90 miles away “as the crow flies” from the center/museum you wish to visit. Admissions staff reserve the right to request proof of residence for benefits to apply. Don’t forget to bring your membership card! Passport venues are not required to grant free admission to visitors who forget their cards.
