Win a Family Membership to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center!

When you’re talking about giving experiences instead of things, this one is hard to beat. An annual Mars Family Membership is $165 and gets you access to special events as well as unlimited admission to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center throughout the year.

Before you balk at that price tag, consider this: a family of four would break even if you go just twice a year. Plus you get discounts on food and at the gift shop and FREE general admission to more than 250 participating ASTC Passport Science Centers worldwide AND reciprocal membership to more than 50 participating Smithsonian Affiliate museums! If you take day trips to Nashville, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Birmingham, or Memphis you can get in to many of their kid’s science museums for free as a member.

This is truly a membership that keeps on giving, especially if your family loves space, likes to visit museums, and enjoys VIP treatment at special events. It’s a great gift idea for grandparents!

Speaking of VIP treatment at special events, one is coming up…
