Donor FAQs

No, all you need is your Exploratorium donor card and ID. Donors are welcome to visit anytime without a prior reservation.

Donors and members can skip the line at the main doors and enter the museum through the Tidal Gates, via the plaza on the north side of Pier 15—just follow the signs for Member & Donor Entry. (Or see this handy map.)

Want to share your Daytime or After Dark guest passes, but don't plan on visiting myself?

Guests will either need the guest card shared with them, or you can contact our Reservations office at 415.528.4407 or and give the associate your name and Donor ID. The associate will be able to email the tickets to your guests. You can also reserve future tickets for your guests in person at the Exploratorium—please visit the Front Desk.

Corporate Member FAQs

Corporate Members tickets can be obtained from our Ticketing Desk on the day of your visit by showing your work badge. If you already have a ticket from your HR administrator, you can proceed directly to the ticket entry point. 

Please note that Corporate Member tickets are a limited benefit, and may not include all members of your party. Please ask your HR person for more details or contact our office at or 415.528.4407.
