Whether you’re visiting the Perot Museum from another part of the state, nation or world, your local membership card from another museum could be your passport to savings — offering free general admission for up to two adults and children in your household!

See if your museum qualifies for the ASTC Travel Passport Program!

If your institution is on the list, simply present your valid membership card at the Perot Museum box office to redeem your tickets. Please note that reciprocal admission in the ASTC Travel Passport Program only applies to museums outside a 90-mile radius of the Perot Museum.

Are you a member of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History or the McKinney Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary?

  • We are unable to honor discounted or complimentary offers when general admission tickets are sold out.

FORT WORTH MUSEUM AND HEARD MUSEUM RECIPROCAL ADMISSION

Since the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the McKinney Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary are within a 90-mile radius of the Perot Museum, ASTC reciprocal admission is not available. 

However, a special agreement between these museums allows members at specific levels to enjoy reciprocal admission when they visit these other North Texas museums. These are the levels which qualify for reciprocal admission to the Perot:

  • Wonder level or higher membership with the Fort Worth Museum.
  • Road Runner level or higher membership with the Heard Museum.

These visiting members can present their valid membership card at the Perot Museum box office to receive free general admission for up to two adults and all children in the household.
