A couple years ago, I shared that the Museum of Flight was offering FREE memberships for your children when you acquired a Connections Membership after attending one of their educational programs. They only offer these Connection sign-ups a few times of a year and they are very popular. To be clear, with this membership, your child gets free admission not just for that year, but clear up until they turn 18 PLUS one accompanying adult admission is also waived per visit!
Thrifty NW Mom has reported that there will be a qualifying, educational program called Space Night on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 from 5:30 – 9pm.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Pre-register for the Space Night event happening on June 26th. It costs $12 per kid, but there is financial assistance available.
- During the event, you can sign up your qualifying kids (age 18 and under) for the Connections Membership. They do not need to be present to sign up.
- You will also have the opportunity to visit the Museum of Flight during this event!
What is the Connections Membership all about?
You might be wondering if it’s worth all the bother to make it to an event to sign up. I’d argue that yes, absolutely it is.
Here’s what’s included (taken from the Museum of Flight website):
- Unlimited FREE visits to the Museum for students 5-18 years old and one adult.
- Connections Newsletter highlighting Museum events and education programs.
- Invitations to exclusive events and unique opportunities.
- Unlimited Access to the Alaska Airlines Aviation Education Center and its network of educational support tools.
- Personalized information and recommendations tailored to your interests.
- Early registration for select Museum education programs.
Considering that a youth admission to the Museum of Flight ordinarily costs $7, I’d say that’s one fantastic freebie! You can read more about the Connections Program at the Museum of Flight website. They’ve also posted this email address: [email protected] as a way to reach out directly with questions or comments.
