Museum Pass Program

Know Before You Go

Below is a list of instructions for new ways you will have to book a museum pass for the listed museums. If a museum is not listed, you can book the pass how you normally would under the Reserve a Pass heading below.

Academy of Natural Sciences

For the health and safety of our members and visitors, we are offering timed ticketing. This allows us to reduce museum capacity to 25% or less and encourages social distancing of 6 feet.

We highly recommend reserving your free member tickets online at bit.ly/ANSMemberTickets prior to your visit. For detailed instructions on the ticket reservations process, you may download the Member Tickets Guide for reserving your tickets on a desktop computer or on a mobile device. Your online tickets will be emailed to the email address you provide. When you arrive, we will either scan your tickets from your phone, or you may choose to print your tickets at home and bring them with you.

Members will receive free, full access to the building. This includes Dinosaur Hall, the dioramas and the special exhibits, Permian Monsters and Wildlife Photographer of the Year. To maintain visitor safety, some of our regular high-touch exhibits will be temporarily closed: Outside In, Butterflies! and The Big Dig.
