How Membership Works
The "level" of your Membership indicates the total number of people that may visit the Connecticut Science Center at one time. On all Membership levels 2 and above (excluding the Individual Membership), you may name either 1 or 2 adult “Carholders” (also called “Primary Members”). These Cardholders must be adults over the age of 18. You can think of these names as a primary membership holder and an alternate, one of whom must always be present to use the membership, and count towards the total. The other "slots" on the Membership are flexible, they can be used for either adults or children. If you have children ages 2 or below, they are free and do not need to be counted under your Membership. Children ages 3 and above should be counted in the Membership total.
Caregiver Add-on: $30
This option can be added on to any membership level 2 or above. This feature allows you to add a third “Cardholder” to your membership, so that a grandparent, au pair, nanny, or other caregiver may also use your Membership and visit with your children. Note – this option does not increase the total number of people who can visit at any time, that is still designated by the membership level. The Caregiver Add-On allows a third valid user for the membership, who can visit and use the membership without one of the primary Cardholders present.
Not sure if a Membership is what you want right away? That’s OK; try before you buy! Our trade-in option allows you to purchase General Admission tickets and then apply a portion of the ticket purchase towards the purchase of a new Membership. Plus, we offer $10 off same day trade-ups! But if you need more time to decide, trade-ups with your original receipt are accepted 30 days after your General Admission purchase. The receipt from your General Admission sale MUST be presented at the time of trade-up! Trade-ups are only available at the Science Center ticketing counter or by calling the Membership office at (860) 520-2160. Please note that trade-ups cannot be processed online.
Processing and Delivery
Please allow up to 4 weeks for processing and delivery of Membership cards. If you wish to visit before you receive your Membership cards, please bring your valid photo ID to the ticket counter to receive a temporary card.
Memberships are non-refundable and non-transferrable. At least one named member listed on the Membership card must be present and is included in the admission count when visiting. Named members must be over the age of 18 years. To protect the value of your Membership, named members will be asked to show a photo ID when visiting. Admission privileges do not include visits with school groups or other group reservations. Memberships are exclusively for the Connecticut Science Center. We do not participate in any reciprocal membership programs or ASTC Passport.
The Connecticut Science Center respects and maintains the security of your personal information. Personal information is not shared or sold to any third party.
