Pacific Science Center Membership Discount –
$19 for 1 Year Family Membership!
Did you know that you or someone you know could get a 1 year family membership to Pacific Science Center in Seattle for just $19 for the year? This is a special membership they are offering to low-income families around the Northwest who are on public assistance. This special membership is offered to families who are on public assistance such as for food, health/medical and housing. If this is you or you know someone who could benefit from this membership, make sure to share it with them as the Pacific Science Center is such a wonderful education center for families in this area. It really can provide hours of fun for kids to explore & learn more about science.
Regular admission to the Pacific Science Center for adults ages 16 – 64 is $19.75, so this 1 year membership for your whole family is actually slightly cheaper than the price of a 1 day admission. So this is an amazing deal for families who may not be able to afford to visit the Pacific Science Center!
*This information is not on the website that I could find. I called the Membership Office today (4/27/17) and found out all the details so I could verify & share with all of you. I’d call them yourself if you have any questions.
Family Level Membership Discounts – $119 value
Membership covers 2 named adults on the pass and up to 6 named youth (ages 3 – 18)
Includes 8 guest passes
15 documentary IMAX passes
Free admission to planetarium and matinee laser shows
Discounted documentary & featured IMAX movie tickets
Member pricing on special exhibits (such as $12 for Terracotta Warriors exhibit instead of $32.75/adults)
10% off purchases at Pacific Science Center Cafe, Concession Stands & Store
Discounts on educational camps & programs, including birthday parties
Free invitations to exclusive Member Previews of special engagement exhibits & IMAX movies
Free admission to over 350 science centers around the US through the ASTC Passport Program (this is one of the best benefits in my opinion as you can get free admission at science centers around the country if you are traveling). Since this is a listed benefit of the Family Level membership, I’m assuming it would be the same for the low-income membership, but I would ask them about this to be sure.
How to Get Family Membership for Low-Income Families:
Registration is so simple in how you can receive this family membership for low income families.
- Visit the Pacific Science Center and the membership office and ask about this membership for low income families. I’d bring a copy of the paperwork that shows the public assistance you are receiving. You can then get signed up for the membership for that year.
- Call the Pacific Science Center Membership Office at this number (206) 443-2924. You can sign up and pay your $19 membership via phone & then they will send a receipt via email & you will just need to bring photo ID when you visit the Pacific Science Center for them to look up your membership.
My husband was just up there last night actually for an educators’ event where he got to see the new exhibit, the Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor. This never-before-seen exhibit just opened up in April and will be here for 5 months – with only a 2 city tour in the US – here in Seattle & Philadelphia. Tickets normally cost $32.75 but for members it is only $12 (so this is not included in your membership, but PSC members get it at a significant discount). They have had some amazing exhibits come to the Pacific Science Center, so this is a way to be able to go at a discount when you have a membership.
