Our Reciprocal Programs

Corning Museum of Glass members at the Donor level and above are able to take advantage of our reciprocal programs that allow free or discounted admission at institutions across the globe. We're currently a part of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) Travel Passport Program, North American Reciprocal Museum (NARM) Association, and the Reciprocal Organization of Associated Museums (ROAM). Some institutions who participate in these reciprocal programs restrict benefits. Members are encouraged to contact the participating institution in advance for more information and restrictions.

Visiting The Corning Museum of Glass with a membership card that has an ASTC, NARM or ROAM logo? Present your active membership card with at least one of the previously listed logos and receive complimentary admission for two adults per active cardholder. Kids and teens age 17 and under are always free! You'll also receive a 15% discount off regularly priced items in the Museum Shops. Discount excludes some items, Make Your Own Glass, Cafe and online purchases.
