ASTC Travel Passport Program

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is part of the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Travel Passport Program. The ASTC program provides free general admission to members of participating museums and science centers. Valid membership card with ASTC logo must be presented upon your visit. Reciprocal admission applies to the number of people covered in your membership, not to exceed 2 adults and 4 children. Restrictions apply.**

Guests wishing to take advantage of the ASTC Passport Program are unable to pre-book timed admission tickets to the Intrepid Museum. To make use of reciprocal membership benefits, visitors to the Museum can claim their tickets in our Box Office and must show our Visitor Services team proof of membership at an eligible ASTC institution that displays their current membership level and expiration date. Tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis due to our limited capacity. Kindly review the Museum's health and safety guidelines before visiting and review some FAQs here.

  • **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.
