Your Membership supports science and technology learning.

We need our members more than ever during this time. To show our gratitude for your continued support, we will be extending all memberships.

Everyone at the Saint Louis Science Center, from our passionate educators to every team member behind the scenes, is dedicated to fulfilling our mission. We will continue to connect our community to science and create educational programming and galleries that inspire a passion for learning and science – whether they’re in our building or online in your home. Our members and our community are the reason we are able to support science literacy in the St. Louis region, especially during challenging times like these. Your support today will keep science and technology learning burning bright for the future.

Your support matters.

As a non-profit organization and a free museum in the St. Louis community, we rely on Memberships, donations and ticket sales to continue bringing our community informative science content. Every dollar helps our educators and team provide you with fun and exciting experiences at the Science Center. Please consider purchasing or gifting a membership for when we reopen to the public or making a donation using the links below. We can’t wait to welcome you back to your Science Center.
