Frisco likes to be cutting-edge. Where else will you find a local history museum a quarter mile down the road from a videogame museum? Frisco is home to the world’s largest home Pong console, a 1.2 million pound steam locomotive, and a walk-in hurricane-force wind simulator.
Frisco’s developing museum district features some of the most unique and interactive museums in North Texas. A partnership between the National Videogame Museum, The Sci-Tech Discovery Center, The Frisco Discovery Center, The Frisco Heritage Museum and The Museum of the American Railroad offers visitors a discounted way to visit all of Frisco’s museums with a single transaction.
Imagine if you could experience all of Frisco’s museums for one low admission price!
The Frisco Museum Pass was inspired by the popularity of the POGO Pass Program. As a complimentary service, POGO packaged visits to some of our venues with others in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. While it’s a great program, the Frisco Museums wanted a pass that was branded solely for Frisco attractions to increase their visibility amongst each other’s visitors and encourage return visits in the future.
The Frisco Museum Pass offers admission to ALL of Frisco’s museums: National Videogame Museum, Sci-Tech Discovery Center, Frisco Discovery Center, Frisco Heritage Museum and The Museum of the American Railroad.
How does it work?
The pass can be purchased at any of the participating museums for $23.00 (a 25% savings if you purchased entry into each museum separately) and is valid for one year after the purchase date. At each visit, get your pass punched by the corresponding museum.
