Buying a membership to WonderLab Museum of Science, Health and Technology has several benefits, but one many people may not be aware of is the museum’s affiliation with the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC). What that means for WonderLab members is free admission to other ASTC museums across the country. While there are exclusions (chiefly, no free admission to ASTC museums within 90 linear miles of your home or your home museum), there are hundreds of member museums across the country. 

Among those of particular interest to Bloomingtonians might be Chicago-area museums, including The Adler Planetarium, The Field Museum, and the Museum of Science and Industry.
