Try Before You Buy

Member Tips: Try Before You Buy!

How you can apply the cost of admission toward a membership!

So you’re not 100% sure that a membership is right for you and your family. Why not take us up on our “try before you buy” opportunity?

Did you know that when you purchase daily admission for Discovery World you can apply what you paid towards a 12 month membership? That means that you can see just how much your two year old loves looking at all of the fish in our Reiman Aquarium, and you can test out your guitar knowledge in Les Paul’s House of Sound all the while knowing that what you paid could be used for that yearly membership. Just hang on to your receipt, visit the Membership or Admissions Desk before you leave that same day, and we will get you signed up for a year of fun and learning!

Along with 12 full months of unlimited visits, members also get perks like flat rate parking for our underground garage, discounts on classes & camps, and invitations to our member only events like Halloween Members Night and the lakefront fireworks. Oh, and did we mention the free admission to over 300 different museums across the country and around the world?!

A one-time visit for a family of four (two adults and two kids) will cost $70.00*, and that is already more than half way to a Family Level Membership which only costs $115 for the entire year. That sounds like a pretty good deal! But you don’t have to trust us, come on in and put our “try before you buy” opportunity to the test.

We know you won’t be disappointed!

*HOT TIP: If you have family or friends who are already members, ask to come along as their guest and receive a $5 courtesy discount off regular admission. That discounted admission can still be applied toward a membership by the end of the day!

Membership pays for itself in just two visits!

Membership is the best (and most cost-saving way) for your family to enjoy fun and learning throughout the year!

With all of our memberships you’ll receive free admission, program discounts, special member-only events, and more! Members also enjoy FREE access to the Kohl’s Design It! Lab every weekend of the year.
