Teacher Partner Program

Become a Teacher Partner!

Join our program for teachers and gain access to all of the Museum's educator resources, plus enjoy special discounts on workshops, store purchases, and more. The Teacher Partner Program is open to all licensed K – 12 teachers actively employed in a public or private New England school.

The Museum of Science has implemented a new and improved ticketing and data management system! This will make your field trip planning and reservation process even better. All teachers interested in membership should complete registration, even if you are or have been a Teacher Partner. Once registered, you will receive your membership card at your school’s address within four weeks. Please plan your first visit accordingly. Teachers must have their Teacher Partner Card to enter the Museum.

    • Passes should be picked up in the Educator Resource Center.
    • Passes for special venues (Omni, Planetarium, etc.) must be exchanged at the Museum box office.

Book your field trip today to secure preview passes to view the Gunther von Hagens' BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life exhibition before your visit, and get a head start on aligning BODY WORLDS content with your classroom curriculum. Schools that bring up to 39 students are eligible for 2 teacher preview passes, 4 teacher passes for 40-79 students, and 5 teacher passes for 80 or more students.

After booking your field trip, all BODY WORLDS teacher preview passes must be reserved, in advance, by calling Science Central at 617-723-2500. As the lead teacher, you will be the one to coordinate and reserve the preview passes (selecting specific dates and times) for the other teachers in your group.

Benefits of the program are intended for the registered Teacher Partner cardholder only and are not transferable to other individuals. Teacher Partner affiliation is valid for one year and requires online renewal to remain active. Cardholders will be contacted by email to renew their program participation.
