One of my absolute favorite places to visit with my family is the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana. My kids love all of the exhibits and it’s hard to get away from there in under two hours. We usually extend our visit a little longer and sneak in lunch at the Taco Bell that is located on the bottom floor of the Center. It’s a perfect place to visit on a hot summer day.
Since my family loves The Cube so much and we visit often ,we bought a membership. I’m a huge fan of memberships for any place that you love. You usually save a lot of money and in many cases your membership is tax deductible. You also have the benefits of special member days or nights. I love the member nights at the Discovery Science Center. They are held on a weekday evening and are open only to members. The kids always have a blast on the member nights.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a membership for your family – look no further.
You can buy your membership online at the Discovery Science Center until the end of March and save anywhere from $5.00 to $15.00 on the regular price.
We have the family membership which comes with admission of two designated adults and up to 4 children/grandchildren.
You can also buy and individual membership for one designated adult and one guest or a family and friends membership which has the same benefits of a family membership plus the benefit of bringing two additional guests per visit.
To enjoy the benefits just Enter Coupon Code: YT6N54 and purchase before March 31st. It’s a great deal!! To purchase online click here and for additional info on the center click here.
Here are a couple of the new exhibits that the Discovery Science Center will be hosting
