Explorer level Witte members receive Time Travelers as a free reciprocal membership network for historical museums, sites, and societies throughout the United States. The Missouri History Museum created the program in 1998 so that members of historical institutions could receive exclusive benefits and privileges at museums and historical sites nationwide.
Members of theFund or card holders of theFunDcard get $1 off general admission and 10% off in the museum store.
The Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Passport Program is a consortium of more than 270 museums throughout the world. The Witte is a part of this collection of museums that encourage reciprocity. Members have free access to other ASTC member facilities.
