Membership Update

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is closed to the public for now. For questions about membership please email membership@fwmsh.org or call 817-255-9531. We will extend all active memberships for one month for every month the Museum is closed.

Do you want to let our local health care professionals know how much you appreciate them?

When you purchase or renew your membership during May, we will provide a free Fort Worth Museum of Science and History membership to a health care professional. Many parents who are essential health care workers are staying apart from their children due to the coronavirus outbreak, so they will need fun family activities when they are finally able to relax. Nominate a health care professional you know to receive a free Discover 2 membership!* Send their name, hospital, and email address to submissions@fwmsh.org. While we can never express the depth of our gratitude to our health care workers, we wanted to say, “thank you” and hopefully make their days a little brighter, Together we will get through this!

Discover, Wonder, Imagine!

Membership is a great way to enhance your Museum experience! Your membership usually pays for itself in two visits!

Enjoy a full year of learning adventures with FREE exhibit admission and extra guest passes. You will also receive FREE or significantly reduced tickets to the OMNI Theater and Noble Planetarium, discounts throughout the Museum, and invitations to exclusive members-only events and programs throughout the year. Plus, take advantage of reciprocal admission opportunities with the Association of Science and Technology Centers.

*Health Care Professional memberships will be awarded from the nominations received, with valid ID. Actual number of free memberships will depend on the number of memberships purchased or renewed during the promotional period. Additional terms may apply. A nomination is no guarantee of a free membership.
