Wonder Fund Memberships

Residents of Cass, Clay, Jackson and Platte counties in Missouri, and Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties in Kansas who meet U.S. Federal Poverty Guidelines are eligible for $5 Wonder Fund memberships. 

These memberships are made possible through our the museum’s Wonder Fund, which is a 100 percent donor-supported fund designated for the purpose of sharing the museum experience with families and children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy our programs and exhibits through memberships and field trips. All Wonder Fund memberships are subject to the availability of monies donated by organizations and private individuals in support of this program.

Please note: Memberships are non-transferable. All individuals included in the membership must reside in the same household and be named on the membership application.

If you have any questions about Wonder Fund memberships, please contact Membership and Visitor Engagement Manager Julie Brown at
