Become a Wonderscope Member

Membership to Wonderscope Children’s Museum of Kansas City gives families an opportunity to save money and fully enjoy the many innovative exhibits and programs that have made the museum a leader among children’s museums. Wonderscope’s multi-sensory, hands-on environment exposes young children to a variety of activities that supplement their home or classroom experiences.  Membership also helps children discover at the critical age of their development science, art, and literacy, and introduce important skills such as problem solving, observation, spatial and creative thinking, and communication.

What to expect when you are a member

Now that you have joined Wonderscope, we want you to start using your membership! You don’t have to wait for your membership card to arrive to take advantage of your membership. All you need is your name and photo ID.

When will I receive my membership card?
Membership cards will be available upon your next visit to Wonderscope. Memberships not picked up within two weeks of purchase will be sent to the primary cardholder via US Mail.

May I receive duplicate cards?
Each membership receives one card. If a second adult listed on your membership would like an additional card, you can request a duplicate via with “Duplicate card” in the subject line. We will notify you when the card is ready.

Can my children visit without an adult?
Children need to be accompanied by an adult, 18 or older, to come and play.

Can I bring a friend from another member family with me to Wonderscope?
Yes! Simply check in the member child with their parents’ last name or member number.

If I bring a non-member guest, can they use a spot on my membership?
We are so happy that you are sharing Wonderscope with your friends! While they cannot “use” a spot on your membership, as they are named spots, they are welcome to pay admission and check in with you or you can use one of your free passes.

Can other family members use my membership?
No, only persons listed on the application are eligible to use the membership; however, other family members can be added when you upgrade your membership. For example, if you have a Playtime Mini for three people and you would like to add two grandparents, then a Wonderful membership would allow you to add up to six total people for a full year to your membership rather than three.
