New Membership Program

Brooklyn Children’s Museum is pleased to announce the launch of our new membership program! Over the past few years, we've been collecting feedback from you in order to improve your experience as a member. And, we've been listening! Based on your input, we've changed the structure of the program to meet your wish for better and more benefits.

If you are an active member who purchased a benefits package from our former program (Grandparents Circle, Pioneer, Trailblazer, Globetrotter, Voyager, or Explorer), please note that we will honor the benefits you purchased with your package until your membership expires.

Reciprocal Benefits

ASTC Travel Passport Program

  • ASTC Travel Passport Program entitles visitors to free general admission, for up to two (2) adults and four (4) children, at participating centers/museums.
  • Science centers and museums located within 90 miles of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum are excluded from the program unless that exclusion is lifted by a mutual agreement. The 90 miles are measured "as the crow flies" and not by driving distance.
  • To receive Travel Passport Program benefits, you must also live more than 90 miles away ("as the crow flies") from the center/museum you wish to visit.
  • Admissions staff reserve the right to request proof of residence for benefits to apply.
  • Card holder must be present.
  • Before visiting, we strongly advise you to call the center/museum you wish to visit to verify that you are eligible for the reciprocal admission benefit and to check if there are any limitations.


We currently have a mutual agreement with Intrepid Museum, New York Hall of Science, and Staten Island Children’s Museum. This agreement waives ASTC’s 90-mile restriction. We also have complimentary reciprocal visiting days with New York Transit Museum and Liberty Science Center.

To learn more, please visit ASTC’s website.

ACM Reciprocal Program

  • The ACM Reciprocal Program is a voluntary network of ACM member museums open across the U.S. and Canada that reciprocate discounted admission to one another's members that hold premium family memberships.
  • Nearly 200 museums participate in the network and reciprocate 50% off general admission for up to six (6) people.
  • Card holder must be present.
  • The list of museums participating in the network may change, so please call the museum you plan to visit ahead of time to verify their participation in the ACM Reciprocal Network.
