Your membership helps Fleischmann Planetarium with its operations, and enables us to bring new shows and exhibits, present special events and develop thought-provoking programs and classes for children and adults alike. In addition, Fleischmann Planetarium is a partner of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Passport Program, which offers our members free or discounted admission to hundreds of partner museums and centers around the world.
