Astc Reciprocal Agreement

Many museums offer this kind of reciprocal membership, but often the ins and outs of this reciprocity can be a little difficult to follow. And to make things even more confusing, there will be some major changes in one of the major change programs, the Children`s Museums Association, which will come into effect on April 1, 2013. My family has been a member of the Boston Science Museum for several years. We regularly take advantage of our mutual benefits, as they offer ASTC- AZA. The added benefit of visiting the zoo is a real bonus for us. Roger Williams Park Zoo in RI is a favourite, as is the Worcester Ecotarium. But we, too, at the West Hartford Children`s Museum, have had difficulty honoring reciprocity, or it has been very difficult to maintain the line on several occasions. I wrote it on our list. In addition to being a museum, we usually plan trips with the intention of visiting museums and it is always an added value for our trips to make wonderful memories. So when Mandy proposed to establish an article describing the basics of the two major mutual programs, the Association of Children`s Museums (ACM) and the Association of Science Technology Centers (ASTC), I jumped at the chance to educate myself right next to our readers. Thank you very much for this message on reciprocal programs. One point to make clear: the Connecticut Science Center is a member of the ASTC; However, the centre does not participate in the Passport program. So happy to hear that the mutual program has been helpful to your family.

Thank you for sharing! The two major member organizations that offer these reciprocal programs are the Children`s Museums Association (CMA) and the Association of Science Technology Centres (ASTC). If your primary museum is a member of one or both of these organizations, it means that your membership in the museum can benefit from reciprocal benefits (i.e. free or reduced admission to other museums that are also members of these organizations). Thank you for your exchange of experiences. I am sure there are lots of people who have encountered the same problem. It is unfortunate that this 90-mile limit exists. The name of the ASTC program is the „Passport program“ which makes me think that they encourage people to travel by offering reciprocity. Of course, it`s not always the easiest thing to do when you have young children! But the good news is that there are sometimes exceptions. So it`s never a shame to call ahead to see if your membership is accepted. Thank you again for your comments! Hi girls! Thank you for demystifying the CMA`s mutual membership changes for everyone – I know there will be a bumpy trip on April 1, but this contribution will certainly help people understand the changes.

The Museum of Science suspends participation in the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Passport Program and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Change Program. At present, we do not accept reciprocal authorizations from other institutions due to occupancy constraints. If you would like to visit, please travel to to buy tickets in time before your visit. If you are a member of the Science Museum who wishes to take advantage of your mutual benefits to access one of the participating institutions, please call the institution concerned to confirm its mutual membership status.
