Summer of Fun Membership – Available June 21-30

This year, we’re offering a special membership option for families that want to make the Discovery Village their backyard during Summer Break! This special offer is only available from the first day of Summer (June 21) through June 30.
What’s the Difference?
With a Summer of Fun membership, you and your family can visit the museum as much as you’d like from the first day of Summer until Labor Day. You’ll also be able to stop by during our Members Only Mornings each Tuesday from 8-10am. Lastly, you and your family will enjoy reduced admission to our first-ever Salem Maker Celebration on August 9. The Summer of Fun membership is just $35 for up to 2 parents and 5 children. No add-ons are available.
Unlike full memberships, Summer of Fun memberships cannot be used for:
Reciprocal admission to other museums
Discounts on parties, camps, classes, or gift shop purchases
