General Admission Ticket Fundraising


Come to the museum with your group or encourage everyone to enjoy the museum on their own schedule. At the Academy of Natural Sciences, you can wander among towering dinosaur skeletons, discover an indoor tropical butterfly garden, and watch scientists at work in a real fossil prep lab. Explore ecosystems from around the world through our historic dioramas, or be transported to the great outdoors through our hands-on discovery center for children. There’s always something new happening at the Academy!

Now, your families can share in the excitement of engaging science and raise money for your organization at the same time!
