July Membership Drive: Free Mars Plushie with Your NEW Membership

July 1st, 2015

MembershipsSquareImageUpdated*: It’s time for the Clark Planetarium annual membership drive! We want you and your family to experience all of the fun and free activities available at the Planetarium, and get a few extra little benefits to go along with them! When you become a member of Clark Planetarium in the month of July 2015, you’ll not only have access to all of the free exhibits and free programming enjoyed by the public but also:


  • Complimentary admission to IMAX and Dome Theatre shows and programs
  • 15% discount at our concessions/snacks counter
  • 15% discount in the Planet Fun store (telescopes, binocular & accessories excluded)
  • Free member-size popcorn with purchase of a small drink for $1
  • Quarterly newsletter
  • Blocks of 10 tickets for $50 to IMAX documentary films or Hansen Dome Theatre shows
  • 10% Discount on Discovery Gateway memberships
  • Private ‘Members Only’ events and show previews
  • Free or discounted admission to over 270 ASTC museums worldwide

And in July 2015, when you and/or your family join the Clark Planetarium family of members you’ll get one FREE “Mars”tian plushie as our thank you for supporting the planetarium. Just a couple of quick details, though.

  • Plushies are first-come, first-served, while supplies last between July 1 and July 31, 2015.
  • Plushies are limited to one per member group, not per member. Purchase of a Duo, Family, or Super Family membership earns one free plushie. We are unable to accommodate requests for additional free plushies, but they can be purchased in the Planet Fun store.
  • Plushies are for new members only. If you’re an existing member, we have great deals for you that make the renewal of your membership a steal!

Carl Sagan called it “a star that failed.” It’s bigger than all of the other planets in our solar system combined.  Big enough that, if it were hollow, Earth would fit inside more than 1,000 times.
