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.
