Home to nearly 60,000 live animals, a star-studded 75-foot planetarium, and a lush rainforest inside a 4-story glass sphere, the California Academy of Sciences is a microcosm of our marvelous world—and no two visits are ever the same. Become a member to add science, wonder, and inspiration to your daily life, every day of the year.
March is Members' Month! Explore a superbloom of exclusive programs, from animal feedings and exclusive members-only talks to deep discounts on dining, tours, and more.
Science up close
Reward your curiosity with exclusive programs all year long, from mind-expanding member talks and exciting animal feedings to sneak peeks at all-new exhibits. Experience science serenity twice a week at Tuesday Member Hour (8:30-9:30 am) and Jerry Hume Sunday Member Hour (10-11 am).
Perks in store
Free admission is just the beginning. Academy members receive 10% off at our stores and restaurants and on sleepovers and birthday parties, and 20% off VIP Tours, lectures, and NightLife. Save time at the door, too, with a dedicated member entrance.

Science is for everyone. We offer a variety of ways to make membership more accessible, including monthly payment plans as low as $6 and $29 memberships for EBT/CalFresh, WIC, Lifeline Pass, and Medi-Cal cardholders.
