What are digital membership cards?

Digital membership cards can be downloaded and saved to your smartphone or tablet. Going digital means you never have to worry about forgetting your membership card, in addition to being more environmentally friendly and helping to reduce administrative costs. After joining or renewing your Science Center membership, the primary member listed will receive an email with a link to download the digital card.

Is there a cost to having a digital membership card?

No. Your digital membership card is free.

How do I receive my digital membership card?

Once you join or renew your membership, you will receive an email within 24 hours with an attached link. Click on the link to download your digital membership card to your smartphone or tablet.

  • For iPhone users, access the email from your smartphone and click the "Download" button, click "Add to Wallet" then "Add." The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet. It can be accessed in Apple Wallet at any time.
  • For Android users, you’ll need to download Wallet Passes from the Play Store prior to downloading the card. After you have the app, access the membership email from your smartphone and click “Download." The card will automatically go to your Wallet Passes app, where it can be accessed at any time.

What will be on my digital membership card?

Your digital membership card will show your name, membership level, expiration date, and member ID. The back of the card will list member benefits and ASTC Passport Program information.

Can I use this digital membership card to visit other ASTC Museums?

Yes. Your digital membership card is just like a physical card. Please show your digital membership card and valid ID at other reciprocal locations for free/discounted general admission. Call before you visit to confirm your Passport Program benefits.

Will I get a new digital card if I renew or upgrade my membership?

No. Your digital membership card will automatically update in your wallet. If you notice that your digital membership card did not update, please try refreshing your wallet.

What if I need to update my information on my digital membership card?

Please contact us at or call us at 434.791.5160 to update your information. Or fill out a contact form!

Will I still need to show my photo ID with my digital card?

Yes. We want to ensure that no one else is using your membership benefits.

There are multiple adult names on my membership, how can the second or third person receive the card?

All adult members that are listed on the membership should provide an email address to receive their own digital membership card. If they don’t have an email address on file, the primary member will receive the email with links for each listed adult to download their digital card.

What happens if I downloaded all the digital cards to my smartphone device? How do I share the other cards?

Select the card you want to share. Navigate to the “back of the card” by clicking the small ellipse on the bottom right corner. Look for a “Share Pass” button to send the card to your second or third adult member. After selecting “Share Pass” you will need to select the email or mail option to share their digital card. iPhone and Android users can share the pass via text message if sending to another smartphone. As always, we will request a corresponding photo ID upon entry to ensure that only named members are using your digital card.
