Membership FAQs

Are there any discounts on purchasing a membership?

No, available discounts can only be applied to daily admission prices.

If I have a child under the age of 2, do I need to include them in my membership?

Nope! A child under the age of 2 receives free entry to the Museum. Once the child turns 2 years old, you will need to add them to your membership. You can add additional children or family members  to an existing membership for $20 each. 

How do I gift a membership to someone?

When you purchase a membership to Florida Children’s Museum, the membership starts upon completing your purchase. This means the membership will expire a year from your purchase date.

This is not ideal for many who are looking to give memberships as a gift to family or friends. To gift a membership, we recommend purchasing a gift card to Florida Children’s Museum instead. The recipient can use their gift card to pay for a membership when they are ready for their membership date to start. 

To purchase a gift card, hover over the “Membership” tab on our Menu. A dropdown should appear that says “Gift Cards.” Once you have purchased a gift card, you will receive a digital certificate that you can print to give as a gift. 

How do I use a gift card to pay for a membership?

You can use your gift card to purchase a membership online. Click on our memberships page and click the “purchase membership” button. When you have finished entering in your membership information, there is an option for a gift card as payment. Simply type in the “Gift Card Number” on the bottom left on your gift card to redeem.
