Give the gift of experience this holiday season
Give a full year of learning and play!
Thinkery Membership makes a great gift. It’s easy to give, easy to activate, and fits any size family or group!
Memberships offer a full year of free general admission, as well as a variety of amazing benefits Members can enjoy whether they’re in the museum or at home.

Gift Membership FAQ
Can I give a membership to someone as a gift?
Yes! Our gift membership vouchers are a fantastic way to give the gift of hands-on exploration and STEAM-based learning. Your purchase also supports Thinkery’s mission to equip and inspire the next generation of creative problem solvers.
How do gift membership vouchers work?
Gift membership vouchers are sold in the amount equal to the membership plan you want to give. Recipients may redeem their gift voucher anytime before its expiration date. Their full year of membership benefits will begin on the day they redeem their voucher (not the day you give it to them).
Where do I purchase a gift membership voucher?
The easiest way to purchase a gift membership voucher is through our website. You can also purchase one by speaking to our friendly Admissions staff during your in-person visit or by calling our Membership team at (512) 469-6225.
How is the membership voucher delivered?
You’ll receive a receipt via email that has a customizable PDF template, as well as instructions on how to fill it out. When you’re ready to share the gift, you can either print the voucher or save it to your computer and email it as an attachment to your intended recipient! If you need assistance, please feel free to reach out by email.
Is my purchase tax-deductible?
Yes, it is! Thinkery is a nonprofit organization and relies on membership support to continue providing innovative exhibits, outstanding programs, and hands-on learning opportunities for families all over Central Texas. We thank you for your generous donation!
You can reach out to us via email if you need additional information for tax purposes.
Gift Membership Voucher Redemption
I received a gift membership voucher; how can I redeem it?
You can redeem your voucher anytime prior to its expiration by purchasing a membership online and using the code provided in the ‘Apply Membership Voucher’ field at checkout.
You can also redeem your voucher in-person during your first visit or by phone at (512) 469-6225. Just make sure to have your voucher (and the code) handy!
Can I use a voucher toward my membership renewal?
Absolutely! If you’re renewing online, just use the gift voucher code provided at checkout. If you choose to renew by mail, include the membership voucher with your renewal slip.
What if I want to purchase a different membership level?
Go for it! You’ll just pay the difference between the two levels. For example: if you received a membership voucher for the Family of 4 plan ($140) but want a Family of 5 plan ($165), you’ll use your voucher and then pay the difference of $25.
Membership benefits are non-refundable, non-transferable, and are to be used by the Member’s household and guests only.
