*MOSAC extends NARM reciprocal admission to applicable members of institutions that are outside of a 15-mile radius of MOSAC. NARM memberships from institutions within a 15-mile radius of MOSAC do not qualify for NARM benefits at the museum.

**MOSAC extends ASTC Travel Passport admission to applicable members of institutions that are outside of a 90-mile radius of MOSAC. Per ASTC guidelines, the 90-mile radius includes either the science center where you purchased your membership or your home residence.

***MOSAC proudly participates in Museums for All! This Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS) program seeks to remove access barriers to museum admission nationally and encourages lifelong museum habits. Visitors that present their SNAP EBT (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Electronic Benefit Transfer) and a valid, matching photo ID are welcome to enter the museum FREE of charge. This program supports up to 4 people per general admission visit and does not extend to special events or programs.

NARM/ASTC Members and Museums for All visitors can purchase their tickets at the Admissions Desk on the day of their visit. Please call (916) 674-5000 with any questions.

Available Daily Tickets

Our daily ticketing program allows you to reserve your visit in advance, so you will be able to fully experience all MOSAC has to offer. Tickets can be purchased at the museum. However, advanced purchases are recommended to ensure accommodation on the day of your visit. A complimentary UC Davis Multiverse Theater show is included with your general admission. On the day of your visit, please inquire at the Admissions Desk about show times and reserving a theater seat.

Please note, all visitors including members are limited to one Multiverse Theater reservation per visit – thank you for helping us ensure that as many visitors as possible can enjoy a show.

Admission Tickets can be refunded or rescheduled with 24 hour advance notice. If you are unable to use your tickets on the day of your visit due to illness, your tickets can only be rescheduled on that day. Please call 916-674-5000 or email for assistance.
