MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Memberships are now available at the new Flint Hills Discovery Center in Manhattan.
In effort to launch Flint Hills Discovery Center’s new "Membership Your Way" program, those who purchase FHDC membership now through April 13 are invited to attend a members-only preview. With the Grand Opening on April 14, this special event is a great way to beat the crowds expected on opening day while receiving additional early-bird benefits. Specials include 5-percent off the price of membership (available now through the opening weekend) and a one-time extension on the membership period from 12 to 14 months. Adult memberships are $21.38 with the early-bird pricing and youth memberships are $9.50. Regular pricing is $22.50 for adults and $10 for youth members.
The members-only preview will be held from 10 AM- 5 PM on Friday, April 13, 2012 at the Flint Hills Discovery Center, located on South 3rd Street in Manhattan.
The Flint Hills Discovery Center is an interactive science and history learning center that inspires people to celebrate, explore and care for the Flint Hills. "Membership Your Way" is one of many ways the Flint Hills Discovery Center hopes to embrace its mission and invite community members and visitors to do the same. Memberships are based on 2.5 times the cost of admission. To offer maximum flexibility, individuals and families can build their own membership based on the number of adults or youth wanting to join.
The Flint Hills Discovery Center anticipates acceptance in to the Travel Passport Program of the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC). Members then would be able to obtain free or reduced admission access to more than 300 science centers or museums also participating in the ASTC program, including Science City in Kansas City & Exploration Place in Wichita.
Membership enrollment forms are available at flinthillsdiscoverycenter.org.
