Give the Gift of Membership

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

Due to the current COVID closure we recommend purchasing a gift certificate in the amount of a membership. Memberships purchased with a gift certificate will not begin until museum is open again and the gift recipient has chosen to redeem it.

A Discovery Center Museum membership is the perfect way to say, “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Holidays,” “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” “Congratulations,” or “Thank You!”.

Gift Memberships last all year long.  There are several ways to give a gift membership.  

  • Purchase a gift certificate for a membership online. The membership year will begin when the certificate is redeemed.
  • Purchase over the phone at (815)963-6769, weekdays  9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday - Friday.  
  • Purchase a gift membership online. This memberships will begin as soon as the membership is purchased.
  • You can also purchase a gift certificate or gift membership at our Admissions Desk at our Museum entrance 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.


 Memberships are not refundable after first use.
