We would enjoy having your support and we know you’ll enjoy visiting our museum for free!
Maryland Science Center Membership is for a year. Memberships expire the last day of the month purchased. If you bought on the 15th, it would expire on the last day of that month, 12 months later.
Membership Prices range from $100 for the individual Explorer Level to $275 for the Pioneer +2 Level for 10 admits. Member benefits are the same across the board but our Membership Levels vary in price as they include more people. To learn more, please visit our levels pricing page.
Our Membership Levels are based on the number of people in your group. We don’t label our memberships as Individual, Family, Grandparent, etc. because you can visit the museum with friends and neighbors. When you purchase a membership it is for you and/or your spouse/domestic partner to use exclusively. Member benefits are non-transferable. You choose the level that best fits your group size. Anyone over your level will pay full price to enter the museum. Children under the age of three are free of charge. Children under the age of three do not count toward your total admits.
Maryland Science Center Gift Memberships are available online here.
Online Gift Memberships go into effect immediately after your transaction is approved and you have received your emailed purchase confirmation. Please have all of the information regarding your recipient on hand including a preferred address, phone number and email.
OR you may choose to purchase a Gift Membership Certificate available in person at our ticket desk or over the phone at 410-685-2370.
Recipients of Maryland Science Center Gift Membership Certificates have twelve months from your purchase date to redeem in person at our ticket desk. We do not record any of your recipient’s information until the gift certificate is redeemed. Their 12 month membership will begin the minute it is redeemed. This applies to new members and renewing members. Membership Gift Certificates can also be upgraded by your recipient right at our ticket desk in $25.00 increments. Membership Gift Certificates are sold in the amount of our Membership Levels.
The membership level you choose allows a set number of people, including the cardholder, into the museum at the member rate. Any person over your level will pay full priced admission.
View levels and their allowed number of guests here.
The only people we list on a membership account are the primary cardholder and that person’s spouse. We mail two identical member cards out per membership. Your cards will reflect the level and total number of admits allowed per day on that membership level.
We do not list these individuals on the membership account. Your caregiver/aupair/nanny can visit the Maryland Science Center under your membership but s/he must present your member card and a note authorizing use of your membership for that day.
All Membership Levels allow free admission into our exhibit halls. These include the Planetarium, Observatory, Kids Room and other exhibits.
You can purchase a Maryland Science Center Membership online, via the phone at 410-545-5981, or in person.
