Why Become a Member?

The Iron Hill Museum depends on membership contributions to help meet the needs of the community we are so pleased to serve. Your membership to the Delaware Academy of Science helps to support our exhibits, collections, educational programs, and the operations of the museum throughout the year.


Your Delaware Academy of Science Membership supports exhibits, collections, conservation, scientific research and educational programs throughout the entire year. And the Academy’s partnerships with over 300 peer organizations through the exclusive reciprocal admission program of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) enable our members to visit hundreds of other participating museums, science centers, and historical places of interest for free or reduced general admissions using their identification cards.

For the most current listings of peer organizations currently participating in reciprocal admission programs with the Iron Hill Museum, visit the ASTC Passport Program webpage.
