Free First-Time Parent Membership

Welcome new parents!

This is an exciting time when everything is new, and you and your child are both learning so much—let us support your journey!

Free membership for first-time parents of a child under 18 months

Your membership will let you enjoy free, unlimited visits to Discovery Museum and our Brain Building Together gallery, for children ages 0 to 3 and their caregivers, until your child turns 18 months old.

Dedicated space for ages 0 to 3

A child’s brain develops rapidly from birth to age three. In our Brain Building Together gallery, we’ll make your child’s learning more visible and show you how to best support your child’s brain development at this critical stage—all in a fun and playful way! There is a private infant feeding and nursing space within the gallery.
