Give the Gift of Membership

Give the gift that keeps on giving…a Discovery Center membership!

A Discovery Center Museum membership is the perfect way to say, “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Holidays,” “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” “Congratulations,” or “Thank You!”. Annual memberships begin at $100 for a one-year Family or Grandparent membership.
