All of our membership levels grant unlimited visits for two designated adults and all children in the household for the term of their membership.

Family and Grandparent members must present a valid, government-issued photo ID on each visit. Additional guests will be asked to pay the general admission fee. You may contact our membership team if you would like to make changes to who can access your membership (fees may apply).

Family Plus members are permitted two guests per visit, Friend members are permitted four guests per visit and Lifetime members are permitted six guests per visit. Additionally, Family Plus, Friend and Lifetime members have access to the ACM Reciprocal Network and the ASTC Passport Program. ASTC institutions within a 90-mile radius of Stepping Stones are excluded from Passport Program

Your Membership Matters

Stepping Stones relies on the generosity of family and friends, like you, to help sustain operations and grow. We are a non-profit organization that earns almost half its revenue through sponsorship, grants, gifts and membership. Membership is a support that helps power the engaging learning experiences that our exhibits and programming deliver — your membership is partially tax-deductible and fully appreciated.

The longer you are a member, the more impact you have on the museum and the programs you love. With your membership support, our mission will continue to grow. Thank you for being a part of our family.

Stepping Stones Museum for Children is a private, non-profit 501 (c)(3) children’s museum. Per IRS regulations, the tax-deductible portion of an annual membership is the total cost of the membership minus the fair market value of the guest passes ($16/ea.) included in that membership level.
