 ASTC Passport Program Restrictions

ASTC_rgb_iconThe Virginia Living Museum participates in the ASTC Passport Program. The ASTC Passport Program is a travel benefit for members of local museums traveling outside their area. It is not a regional membership program. Each institution has its own admissions policy, so call before you go to get the details. Also, reciprocity extends only to regular/general admission – it does not include free admission to additional attractions such as classes, special events and planetarium shows. It does not include discounts offered to VLM members.


The VLM participates in the ASTC Passport Program with the following restrictions and it is our policy to check proof of physical address.

1. Residency restriction

To receive Travel Passport Program benefits, your current physical address must be more than 90 miles away (“as the crow flies”) from the Virginia Living Museum.

2. The 90 mile radius restriction

Science centers and museums located within 90 miles of the Virginia Living Museum are excluded from the program. The VLM does not reciprocate with the Science Museum of Virginia.


The VLM offers the ASTC discount to two adults and two children under the age of 18 living in the same household.


VLM members who plan to use the ASTC Passport on their travels are encouraged to call ahead for details because each institution has its own admission policies.
