Follow the links below to download the Reciprocal Admission Agreement for complete details. Please note- some restrictions* apply.
What You Need to Know
These agreements only cover general admission and each science centre has its own policy regarding the number of people who can enter for free. The benefits you receive as members at the Ontario Science Centre do not transfer to the other science centres. For example, OMNIMAX® Theatre and parking privileges will not apply. The reciprocal agreements are subject to change. The Ontario Science Centre assumes no responsibility for how these agreements are implemented at other science centres.
1. Based on your science centre’s/museum’s location: Science centres/museums located within 150km (90 miles) of each other are excluded from the Travel Passport Program. 150km (90 miles) is measured “as the crow flies,” not by driving distance.
Please note that based on these restrictions, the Ontario Science Centre does not have a reciprocal admission agreement with Ripley's Aquarium of Canada, the Buffalo Museum of Science or the Markham Museum.
2. Based on residence:
To receive Travel Passport Program benefits, you must live more than 150km (90 miles) away from the centre/museum you wish to visit.
If you live within 150km (90 miles) of a science centre and hold a membership to another science centre elsewhere, you will not be able to visit your local centre free of charge. To get the most from your membership, we recommend that you become a member at your local science centre.
