Q:

I would like to buy the family membership but when i click it, it tells me its sold out but it also tells me im trying to buy the other one. are they both sold out?

kristina G.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Kristina, Thanks for your email. At present, both of the Groupons have sold out. As a not-for-profit organization OMSI is limited to how many special offers can be made in a year and still keep OMSI accessible for all our visitors. This recent Groupon offer was intended to introduce some of the most basic membership packages to families and individuals who have not been members or perhaps even experienced OMSI before. (We’re always looking for ways to get out the word about the family fun and science educational opportunities at OMSI!) but it was also featured at a introductory price that we cannot afford to offer continuously. Because of this we had limited the number of Groupons available for purchase. We have no plans to continue the offer at this time. Thank you for your interest and for more information visit our website www.omsi.edu, our Facebook page, or by contacting our office.

Q:

How/where do I activate my OMSI membership? I live out of the area but travel to the Portland area frequently throughout the year and would like to use the member ship when we are in town. I would like to take advantage of the other Science Centers in my area (yes we are 90 miles away) but will not be able to make it to the OSMI Center until later inthe summer. Is there an option to activate it online?

Brandi G.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Brandi, unfortunately the membership can only be started at the OMSI membership window. The good news is your year of membership does not begin until you bring in the voucher to OMSI to redeem (anytime before Sept 30th, 2013 per the Groupon details) so anytime this summer 2013 would be a fine time to begin your membership.

Q:

I have 6 kids. Would the family level work for us?

Jenne R.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Jenna, I'm afraid the Family level just covers the 4 children per visit so if you plan on bringing them all often it may not be the best option for you. You could upgrade to the Friend level which includes any 8 children (doesn't have to just be your children), 2 named adults, 2 guests per visit, 8 OMNIMAX/Sub vouchers and unlimited matinee Planetarium shows. Even purchasing either Groupon level and upgrading to this level upon redemption you would be saving quite a bit off the regular priced membership.

Q:

The family membership is sold out. Can I purchase the two adult membership and then upgrade to family through OMSI? Thank you, Kirsten

Kirsten C.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Kirsten: Yes, you can purchase the OMSI for Two and upgrade to the Family level when you get to OMSI and redeem the Groupon. The upgrade Would NOT include the 4 Omnimax/Sub vouchers specially added to the Family level for the Groupon offer, but the upgrade would only be $15 (the difference between the 2 regularly priced memberships) so there is some silver lining there. To get the 4 vouchers plus one guest per visit you could always upgrade all the way up to Family Plus. For a full list of membership levels, prices and benefits see: https://www.omsi.edu/membership

Q:

With the 2 adult membership (one named, one guest) If the child I bring is under 3 can I still bring a guest or does the young child count as the guest?

Kathryn B.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Kathryn, If a child is under 3 years old they do not count against your membership benefits--so you would be able to bring another person as well as the under three child in the scenario you described.

Q:

I have two adults and one toddler (3-year-old) in my family. Would the family pass be necessary for our membership or would the two-person membership be sufficient?

Becky H.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Becky, we consider a child anyone 3 years old to 20, so you have three individuals in your family we count for admissions. The OMSI for two would not get all three of you in to the building at the same time, though the Family level would. If you prefer, you could still get the OMSI for Two and name only 1 adult (let's say you) and have a guest spot so that at different times you could take your child and at other times take your husband, although never at the same time, and your husband could not take the child to OMSI under the benefits in your absence.

Keith B.  from  Merchant  replied on  May 16, 2013

Q:

Are children under 3 free? If I buy the 2 adult and name only myself can I bring a guest and my 1 year old each time we visit? Sometimes I'd like to bring my husband, other times it might be grandma is this the membership level that would work for us?

Kathryn B.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Kathryn, If you set up your OMSI for Two to have one named adult and one guest per visit, that "guest" is a spot that can be filled by a child or adult (or senior) as you see fit for visits to the museum. Note that they must be accompanied by a member, and in this case there would be only one named adult (you) and you are the only named member.

Q:

If I purchase the OMSI for two, can I use it for myself and a different grandchild each time I come. Or does the 2nd person need to be an adult? Thanks, Barbara

Barbara H.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Barbara, f you set up your OMSI for Two to have one named adult and one guest per visit then the "guest" spot can be taken by a child or adult, per your wishes.

Q:

Did I read somewhere that I cause use this OMSI membership as a recipricol pass to the Pacific Science Center, given I am at least 90 miles away from the PSC?

Alisha M.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Becky, OMSI memberships do hold reciprocity with over 290 science centers and museums all over the world. OMSI's reciprocity program comes from being a member of the ASTC--see the ASTC list of reciprocal centers here: http://www.astc.org/members/passlist.htm. (Note that the Evergreen Space and Aviation Museum is not reciprocal with OMSI through mutual reliance on the 90 mile rule, all others listed have reciprocity.)

Q:

Since the Groupon deal comes with four Omnimax tickets, if I get upgrade to the Family Plus for $25, do I get the four tickets that come with the Groupon deal plus the four that come with a Family Plus membership for a total of eight?

Eric H.  asked on  May 16, 2013

A:

Eric, if you upgrade to the Family Plus membership you would indeed receive the 4 vouchers that accompany the Family Plus level membership as well as he four which accompany the Groupon Family level membership deal, for a total of 8 vouchers.
