Special Note:

Thank you for your support of Great Lakes Science Center. The Science Center announced our closure to the public on March 12 and remains closed for the foreseeable future, in accordance with the orders from state health officials.

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we can! Once we are able to confirm a reopen date, current memberships will automatically be extended equal to the length of the closure so you don’t miss any time on your membership period. Additionally, if you choose to renew your membership before the Science Center reopens, your membership will be valid for one year from the reopen date, or one year from the current expiration date, whichever is greater. New membership purchases will begin starting the date the Science Center re-opens. Please note that we are not mailing new membership cards until an open date is confirmed. 

Your membership purchase is vital to helping us fulfill our mission to make science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) come alive! Each year 300,000 visitors explore the wonders of STEM through our exhibits, camps, workshops, science demonstrations and the NASA Glenn Visitor Center. We could not do that without your continued support. Thank you!


Remember, members receive discounts on camps, classes, events and programs! Click here for details on current events and programs.
