Information on our latest 2018 – 2019 Groupon Offer

An online deal for membership and/or admission tickets via Groupon/Living Social is currently on sale via their websites through Thursday, January 31, 2019.  To receive the full benefit of the deals, these purchased vouchers are to be redeemed in person, during our regular operating hours, at our ticket desk, by no later than Thursday, February 28, 2019.  Keep informed of our latest hours by checking our website regularly – Mondays during the Fall and Winter we are closed to the public.  We do not extend voucher redemption days for unexpected building closings.

We do not redeem and process Groupon/Living Social Vouchers over the phone, fax, email or via the mail.  No exceptions.

Groupon/Living Social Membership Vouchers can be redeemed for the Adventurer Level and then upgraded to a higher level if needed.  You can upgrade at any time during your membership cycle.  Upgrades are sold in $25 increments.  Vouchers cannot be used to purchase a lower level of membership.  Please review our levels to find one right for your group.  Children under three are free for all and do not count in your membership admits.

Membership Vouchers cannot be stacked for multiple years of continuous membership.  If you purchased two Groupon/Living Social Membership vouchers, two will be redeemed and will run for the same number of months as separate Adventurer Levels (not a combined Pioneer Level).

You can use one Groupon/Living Social Membership Voucher to extend a current or renew an existing lapsed membership by 12 months.  Be aware of your current or last active level in case an upgrade is needed. 

Any one of our Maryland Science Center ticket agents can help you in person during our regular, public, museum operating hours.  Please indicate if you already have an existing active membership OR you have had a membership with the Maryland Science Center in the past 7 years.  You will be asked to complete an application asking for your name, your spouse name, if applicable, address, email and phone.  You will have the option to either be emailed or mailed a member card.  Adding a preferred email speeds up your emailed member card delivery.

Spouses can redeem Groupon/Living Social Membership Vouchers for the above options.  They must also fill out an application.  The only other name on a Maryland Science Center Membership account at all levels is a spouse.  We do not list caregivers, baby sitters, or other family members.

These vouchers can be purchased as gifts through their websites. If you intended the voucher as a gift but did not forward to your gift recipient via the Groupon/Living Social website, you STILL MUST REDEEM YOUR VOUCHER IN PERSON.  When you arrive, complete an application with the necessary gift recipient information.  No exceptions.

Reciprocal Admission Policy

The Maryland Science Center welcomes members from participating ASTC Passport Program institutions. Reciprocal admission through this program is an important benefit of membership. The Maryland Science Center reserves the right to restrict or deny reciprocal admission. If you are denied reciprocal admission because you are a member of one of these institutions please contact the membership office at that institution to resolve any issues related to our policy. Our current policy for our approved ASTC Participants is limited to 4 permanent exhibit gallery admits (adult or child). Visiting Members MUST present their visiting member card to be considered. Sorry, there can be no exceptions.
