Mask Up and Play Safe
We are committed to the safety of children, visitors, and our staff and follow CDC COVID-19 guidelines. All visitors ages 2+ must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while inside the Museum. Visitors who do not follow this requirement will be asked to leave. We will update our policies according to the CDC guidelines.

How do I add the membership card to my iPhone?

Access the email from your smartphone and click the “Download” button, then click “Add to Wallet” and “Add.” The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet.

I have additional adults listed on my  membership, how can they receive a digital card?

You can also request a personalized digital card for others on your membership. Please email us name(s) and the corresponding email address(es). A digital card will be emailed directly within 24 hours.

I downloaded my card but I can’t find it.

If you have an iPhone, the card will automatically download to Apple Wallet. Check the app for your new card (scroll through any cards that are already there—it may be hiding). If you have an Android, you’ll need to download Wallet Passes from the Play Store prior to downloading the card.

How do I use my digital membership card?

You can use your new digital card the same as you would a physical card—just show your card and a photo ID at the front entrance. You can also use your digital card at Fiddle Sticks Toys to receive your member discount.

Can I also get digital guest passes? 

If your membership level includes guest passes, they will be sent to you in a separate email so you can easily forward them to your friends and family at anytime!

Can I use my new digital card when traveling?

If your membership level has the ASTC Travel Passport benefit, you should see the logo on the front of your card. Simply show your digital membership card upon arrival at participating museums.

I don't have a smart phone, what should I do?

If you were previously issued a physical membership card, you can continue to use it (even after the printed expiration date), as long as the same membership has been renewed. If you would like to request a new card, please contact us at membership@cmhouston.org or (713) 535-7212. Don't forget to include your name and membership ID in your request.

I am not sure I received my digital card. Can you send it again?

You may want to check the Junk, Spam and Unwanted folders in your email. To request another digital card contact us at membership@cmhouston.org or (713) 535-7212 and we can resend the email for you to download.

Are my benefits listed on the digital card? 

All of your benefits are listed on "the back" of your digital membership card. Plus you can also find general information on the museum and reserve tickets in advance!
