How to Get a PacSci Membership for Just $19/Year

How to Get a PacSci Membership for Just $19/Year

Have you heard about the Pacific Science Center EBT discount?!

Did you know that low income families can get a Pacific Science Center Membership for just $19 per YEAR?! This program is legit, folks. We have had a Pacific Science Center membership for many years before I discovered this discount. Believe me, it’s not something you want to miss!

If you’re looking for the Pacific Science Center low income membership, then the ACCESS Membership is what you’re after. This program allows families who receive any form of public assistance (such as food stamps or Medicaid) to purchase a Pacific Science Center membership for just $19 per year!

My kiddos have basically grown up at this place. It’s a family favorite, for sure. We love everything, from the tropical butterfly house to the outdoor water features to the dinosaur exhibits to the planetarium shows!

A lot of museums provide limited benefits to their access memberships. However, these discounted Pacific Science Center memberships are the real deal! You get the same benefits and perks that you would get with the standard $100+ membership!

This family membership covers up to two adults and six children! In addition to one year of unlimited access to the Pacific Center’s permanent exhibits, you’ll also get 15 free documentary passes, 8 free guest passes, unlimited free planetarium and laser shows, member pricing on special events and discounts on purchases at the center!

All this and all you have to pay is $19 per year! NINETEEN DOLLARS!!! When you consider the fact that one adult admission for just one visit costs more than $19, this low income Pacific Science Center membership is an absolute steal!!! It is literally cheaper than one one-time adult admission.

I cannot overstate what an amazing deal this is.  I’m sorry for all the exclamation points and italics, guys. I’m just really, really, really excited about this.

Do they have something similar for Point Defiance Zoo? I have a son who is Special Needs and so most of our extra money goes to his doctors appointments in Seattle and we would love to give him and our family a break and do something other than see doctors while here. I do know that the Children's museum In downtown Seattle near the space needle offers 1.00$ entry for the entire family if an EBT card is shown before you buy the tickets. just FYI :)
