Choose Between Two Options
- $50 for a family membership for up to two adults and two children (up to $80 value)
- $80 for a sponsor membership for up to two adults and four children (up to $125 value)
Both of these annual membership levels include two guest passes per month and 50% off birthday parties at Mayborn Science Theater along with reciprocal privileges to more than 250 science centers in the United States. Family memberships may be expanded to one more member for $20 as long as that member lives at the same address. Sponsor memberships may be expanded to three additional members for $20 apiece, and these additional members do not need to live at the same address.
Mayborn Science Theater
Plummeting into a hurricane’s eye. Tunneling through San Andreas’s interior. Zipping in and out of colliding galaxies. At Mayborn Science Theater, these sorts of adventures are par for the course. Here, wonders of the natural world beam onto a 60-foot digital screen that wraps around an entire 180-seat theater, creating immersive educational experiences. Screened during weekends and weekday matinees, science-minded shows focus on diverse, family-friendly topics such as stars and tropical reefs. Its laser light shows, on the other hand, eschew education for spectacle, dazzling audiences with 3D graphics and 15,000 watts of digital sound.
Outside the dome, Mayborn continues educating visitors at its gallery. Amidst rotating displays on subjects such as rocks and minerals, the Exhibit Space showcases Hubble photographs and shares updates from the Mars rover. The exhibit’s recent acquisitions even include tiles from actual space shuttles, as well as tiles from actual Mahjong games played by astronauts sitting in NASA waiting rooms.
