Member Appreciation Month

A cartoon pterodactyl smiles and outstretches its wings. The text reads "We love our members this much! September is Member Appreciation month!"

When you become a member, you join a community of science lovers who actively help us achieve our mission of enhancing the knowledge and delight of natural science! Now, we want to show you just how much you mean to us.

We’re celebrating members all month long. With a slate of in-person events, we are highlighting some of our favorite things at the museum, offering members deeper discounts than ever and engaging, interactive activities for the entire family. Join as we explore new depths, grow something new and travel back in time with all our September weekend activities. Become a member today!
