New Benefit for HMNH Members

The Harvard Museum of Natural History has joined ASTC, the Association of Science and Technology Centers, and is participating in ASTC’s Passport program. This entitles HMNH members to free admission to more than 300 museums and science centers around the world.

To take advantage of the program, members should be prepared to show their current HMNH membership card with the ASTC logo on it. Members without a logo on their card should contact the membership office at 617.496.6972 or This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , and we will mail you a replacement card. 

Before planning a trip, check the list of participating institutions and be sure to review local program restrictions and limitations, which vary by participating institution. 

There are a few general restrictions when using this benefit. The ASTC Passport program is not valid at other science and technology centers within a 90 mile radius of the member institution (the HMNH). Also, 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.
