Reciprocal Program

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) is a member of both the Association of Childrens' Museums and the Association of Science-Technology Centers. The Discovery is pleased to offer discounted or complimentary reciprocal admission to our guests who present a valid ASTC or ACM membership card from their "home museum", and valid photo identification.


Association of Science-Technology CentersThe Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Passport Program is a network of ASTC member museums around the world that offer free admission to one another's members that hold premium family memberships. Currently, almost 350 museums participate in the network and provide free admission to ASTC Passport members.

Each institution has its own admissions policy, so call before you go to get the details. Also, reciprocity extends only to regular/general admission—it does not include free admission to additional attractions such as special exhibits, planetarium shows, simulator rides or giant-screen films. It also does not usually include museum store discounts.
