**Important Change to ACM Reciprocal Admission Policy:

ACM (Association of Children’s Museums): Effective April 1, 2013, ACM changed its national Reciprocal Admission Program policy, valid at all participating institutions. The current program allows ACM-level members 50% off general admission for up to 6 people per membership.  

ASTC (Association of Science-Technology Centers): As of Nov. 1, 2011, Chicago Children’s Museum ended participation in the ASTC Passport Program and no longer offers reciprocal admission benefits.

* Under IRS guidelines, Family and Explorers memberships are 100% tax deductible, and receipts or cancelled checks should be retained as proof of membership purchase. Donor-level members will receive written acknowledgment from the museum regarding the tax-deductible portion of their memberships. We recommend you consult a tax professional if you have questions.
