We need your support

Members and guests are the heartbeat of Adventure Science Center. You also provide a critical source of operating revenue for the museum - thank you. Your support helps us serve the community.

Two-thirds of our revenue comes from admissions, gift shop sales, camps and school visits - all of which will be lost during our closure. While we are taking significant measures to manage our expenses, we are doing everything we can to provide support for our amazing staff.
