Kids Club Members’ Guide

Eddie, the Academy mascot

As a member of the Kids Club, you can explore the museum in a whole new way. Here are some of the fun things you can do as a Kids Club member.

Decorate your member card

Write your name on the back of your card and decorate it however you like!

Collect stamps by exploring the museum

Join Eddie at the Academy to earn stamps and win a prize! There are 12 spaces on your member card for collecting stamps. Each month, Eddie will have a new Kids Club activity sheet for you to complete around the museum. You can pick up the sheet at the Admissions Desk or near the bottom of this page. Once you've completed the activities, just head back to either Admissions Desk to get a stamp. Remember, there will be a new activity and stamp each month, so be sure to stop in often to explore the museum! Once you've received eight stamps, just head to the Academy Shop and receive your cool Kids Club prize.

Celebrate your birthday with Kids Club

Be on the lookout for a special surprise to be delivered to you during your birthday month!

Show off your smarts on the “Just for Kids” page of Academy Frontiers

Play games, color, and learn fun facts about nature in this special section of our member magazine. You can even ask our scientists questions about the natural world! 

Email your question to, and the answer might be included in our next issue of Academy Frontiers or on our Kids Club Web page.

Receive letters and fun activities from Eddie

Eddie will mail you letters throughout the year with updates, stories, and even some special activities. 

We’re so glad you joined us. Let the fun begin!
