Your Commitment Provides Support

Your membership provides the support that makes Explora possible. Join Explora today and take pride in partnering with us to bring Explora’s unique experiential learning activities to New Mexico.

Member benefits include:

  • Visit us as many times as you want during one year at no charge.
  • Receive discounts on camps, birthday parties, and other special programs.
  • Save 10% on your purchases in Ideas, the Store at Explora.
  • Save even more on store merchandise during special Member Shopping Days.
  • Enjoy free admission to more than 270 participating Association of Science-Technology Centers worldwide through the ASTC Passport Program.

    ASTC Passport Program
    One of the benefits of membership at Explora is being a part of a larger family – The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC). Because of our association with ASTC our members are eligible to receive free admission to over 270 science centers and museums around the world. The "Passport Program" entitles visitors to free general admission for 2 adults and 4 children. It does not include free admission to planetarium and larger-screen theater presentations nor does it include museum store discounts and other discounts associated with museum membership unless stated otherwise.

    Please note—local restrictions apply
    1. Based on your science center's/museum's location: Science centers and museums located within 90 miles of each other are excluded from the program unless that exclusion is lifted by mutual agreement. 90 miles is measured "as the crow flies" and not by driving distance. Science centers/museums may create their own local reciprocal program. ASTC does not require or participate in these agreements, or dictate their terms.
    2. Based on your residence: To receive Travel Passport Program benefits, you must 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. See the PDF for details.  

Here are two great ideas:

  • Donate a Helping Hand membership to enable a low-income New Mexico family to visit Explora for a full year.

  • Give a membership to someone you love!

All or part of a membership may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor.
