Explore your curiosity

As a Member of the California Science Center Foundation, you will support a dynamic educational resource for you, your family and the community. In appreciation for your generous support, Members enjoy a year of exciting benefits and Members-only experiences.

While we have reopened our IMAX Theater and Members are able to use their passes, the High Wire Bicycle and Ecology Cliff Climb remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, you can always enjoy the benefit of feeling good knowing that your Membership contributes to the ongoing success of the Science Center and helps guarantee a place of science learning for future generations.

Join us and be part of the excitement at the California Science Center!

California Science Center
Parking at the Science Center is now automated!

Members who joined or renewed before July 1, 2021 will have received their green parking vouchers in the mail, as in the past. Bring your parking voucher and parking ticket with you to redeem at the Membership Services Window at the Box Office by 5:00 p.m. for validation. For those joining or renewing after July 1, parking vouchers will no longer be mailed; parking benefits will be stored electronically in your Member record along with your IMAX and Attractions benefits. Staff at the Membership Services Window will confirm your available allotment before issuing parking validations. Not a member? Join or renew now and enjoy this and many other benefits while supporting science learning for everyone!

(Please note that parking validations are not valid on Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and Banc of California Stadium event days.)

All California Science Center Memberships are family Memberships. For Members-only events, your admission benefit is for two adults and four children (age 17 and under). Please note that Memberships are non-transferable and non-refundable.
