1) If I buy a membership online do I get an email copy to use right away? We mail out your hard copy card, unless you indicated you are picking it up at the centre. If you do not pick up your card before you travel and you are visiting another science centre, their staff can always call and confirm your membership status with us.
2) How long does it take to get my card? We fill membership orders every day ( even days we are closed). Therefore your membership will be ready within 24 hours of placing your order online.
3) We are currently at another Science centre and forgot our card-what do we do? Please have someone from the other science centre call us to confirm your membership and we can confirm over the phone. Please note: This is only available during hours that we are open. The best option is to make sure to travel with your card!!
4) I called during business hours and there is no answer? Please leave us a message. We are a small centre and quite often cannot answer all of the calls as they are coming in. Please leave us a message with details and we will get back to you right away.
5) Family members are 6 in the immediate household. We recognize that each household is unique, so our membership covers up to 6 people living in the same household. If you have more than 6 family members in your immediate household, please contact us and we can discuss other options.
6) We value your support, as do all of the the Science Centres in each community. Please support your local science centre. ie, if you live in the Vancouver area, this would mean purchasing a membership to Science World. Our membership is good for those that live more than 150km away from another science centre. Memberships are the way we are all funded and by supporting us through membership we are able to bring more exhibits in as we are not funded through tax dollars.
