Educator Memberships

Educator Memberships and Member Benefits

We love our educators! The Houston Museum of Natural Science offers special discounts on all membership levels for educators. Use your membership to enjoy all the perks of a museum membership for yourself, or use your membership to take advantage of discounts on programs for your students. We hope you’ll do both! After all, joining the HMNS member family means benefits for you, your family, and your students!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take advantage of the educator discount?

To receive the educator discount on your membership, present proof of employment as an educator at the Box Office during your next Museum visit.

What if I’m already a member?

Please email from an active school email account to let us know that you’re an educator. We’ll flag your membership so you’ll have access to all the amazing member benefits for both you and your students!

And, if you’re already a member, sign up for auto-renew and never worry about an expired membership again! You’ll get 20% off your next membership renewal when you sign up for AutoRenew, and you can still enjoy the perks of being an educator and member. Contact for more information on AutoRenew and flagging your membership as an educator. 

Can I apply the educator discount and AutoRenew discount on the same membership?

Unfortunately, we cannot apply two discounts to the same membership. If you’re not a current member and are looking to join, we recommend using the educator discount during your first year of membership. You can then sign up for auto-renew to receive 20% your next year of membership. If you’re already a member, make sure you’re signed up for AutoRenew to get 20% off your next membership renewal. You can still enjoy the educator-specific perks of being a member by emailing to let us know that you’re an educator. We’ll flag your membership, so you can enjoy the benefits for you and your students!

How do I sign up for AutoRenew?

You can call the Membership Office at 713-639-4616 or sign up at the Box Office during your next Museum visit! You’ll get 20% off your membership this year and every year your membership is automatically renewed.

How do I use my membership to get discounts on programs for my school?

When you call or email to book your field trip, student lab, or outreach program, let us know you’re a member. We’ll verify your membership and apply the appropriate discount to your booking!
