The Bruce Museum is part of the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Travel Passport Program.

Reciprocal admission applies to the number of people covered in your membership, not to exceed 2 adults and 4 children.

 **ASTC excludes museums and institutions within 90 miles of membership purchase and purchaser residency. Therefore, if you have a membership with an institution or live within 90 miles of another you are planning to visit, you would not be granted free admission under the ASTC Travel Passport Program. Science centers/museums located within 90 miles of each other are excluded from the Travel Passport Program unless that exclusion is lifted by mutual agreement.

Patron members and above receive additional reciprocal admission to over 40 museums across the country through the Museum Alliance Reciprocal Program (MARP). Visit here for a complete list.
