The Intrepid Museum is part of the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Travel Passport Program. The Travel Passport Program entitles visitors to free general admission - now more than 400 in over a dozen countries. It does not include free admission to special exhibits, planetarium and larger-screen theater presentations nor does it include Museum store discounts and other benefits associated with Museum Membership unless stated otherwise. Acquaint yourself with the family admittance policies (denoted by “F”) of Passport Program sites before visiting

ASTC Travel Passport Program Q&A - Get the most out of your membership

What does ASTC stand for?
Association of Science and Technology Centers

What is it all about?
ASTC is an organization of science centers and museums whose mission is dedicated to furthering public engagement with science among audiences. ASTC Members include not only science centers and museums, but also nature centers, aquariums, planetariums, zoos, botanical gardens, and natural history and children's museums, as well as companies, consultants, and other organizations that share an interest in science education.

What does the ASTC Travel Passport Program have to do with Intrepid Museum membership?
The Intrepid Museum is a member of ASTC and participates in the ASTC travel passport program. So in becoming a member of Intrepid Museum, you are able to visit other participating ASTC museums and institutions free of charge.

Are there restrictions?
Yes. ASTC excludes museums and institutions within 90 miles of membership purchase and purchaser residency. Therefore, if you have a membership with an institution or live within 90 miles of another you are planning to visit, you would not be granted free admission under the ASTC Travel Passport Program. Please refer to our member program restrictions for complete details.

How many people can visit other ASTC participants for free?
Based on your membership level, you are granted free general admission under the museum or institution’s membership admission policy at which you are visiting. Example: A visiting family with a family membership from a participating ASTC institution is granted free general admission for up to two adults and four children at Intrepid Museum, because that is Intrepid’s admission policy for family membership. Some museums and institutions have different policies, so it is best to call and verify prior to visiting.

Does this apply to discounts, exhibits and other promotions?
No. ASTC gives you free general admission only.

How do I know which museums and institutions I can visit?
Upon purchase of membership at the Intrepid Museum, the membership department sends you the most up-to-date list of ASTC participants. This list is subject to change, and a downloadable PDF version is always available on our website under the Members section.

What do I need to bring with me?
Your museum membership card as well as a photo ID.

I have additional questions…
Feel free to contact the membership department if you have any further questions about the ASTC Travel Passport Program by emailing membership@intrepidmuseum.org or by calling (646) 381-5030.
