Annual Membership Policies

  • As a general rule, a membership payment is only deductible to the extent it exceeds the value of the benefits provided in exchange. Roper Mountain estimates that the membership benefits provided at the Basic Membership levels exceed the cost of the membership. As a result, Basic Membership purchases are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Please refer to Internal Revenue Service Publication 526 for more information.
  • All of Roper Mountain’s membership categories provide benefits for one or two adults and their children or grandchildren (ages 18 or younger) living in the same household, unless otherwise specified. However, supporting memberships include several guest passes, which members may use to provide admission to others outside the home.
  • Memberships do not apply to Home School Day. Payment for this educational event is not a member event.
  • Memberships are nontransferable and nonrefundable. IDs will be checked along with membership cards for all ticket purchases and at all events.
  • Roper Mountain Science Center retains the right to amend the terms of the membership program at any time.
  • Legal Notice: all annual memberships are revocable licenses. Roper Mountain reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership and / or deny admission without refund for noncompliance with applicable rules and terms for inappropriate conduct.
