Important Visiting Tips
Participation in and the benefits of reciprocity programs can change at any time, so please keep these tips in mind:
1.) Call Ahead
Before you go, give the museum you plan to visit a quick call to confirm that reciprocal admission benefits or discounts are still in effect.
2.) Bring your MSI Membership Card
You must take your MSI membership card with you in order to verify your identity and the active status of your membership. We are unable to verify MSI membership via telephone. Without your card, you will be required to pay full admission prices.
3.) Check the List
Please note that the ASTC Travel Passport Program excludes museums within a 90-mile radius of MSI.
