MOSI’s Complimentary Ticket Request Guidelines:


Thank you for thinking of the Museum of Science & Industry in planning your fundraising event. Below are the guidelines for requesting a donation of complimentary tickets. Please note that all requirements must be met in order to qualify. Requests must come from licensed, nonprofit organizations. These requests are handled on a case-by-case basis and donations are not guaranteed. Due to the tremendous volume of inquiries received, limited resources make it impossible to satisfy all that ask for and merit assistance.


To request a ticket donation, please send us your request at least one month prior to the fundraising event and include the name of the event you are hosting, the date of the event and your contact information.


Museum staff is unable to return phone calls or expedite requests concerning ticket donations. MOSI is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization and donates thousands of dollars in complimentary tickets every year.


As we are able, we do donate tickets to:

  • Church groups
  • Public and Private Schools
  • Community organizations
  • National non-profit organizations


We are unable to donate for:

  • For-profit organizations
  • Events benefiting a single person or family
  • Non-fundraising events


Tickets typically include general admission (MOSI permanent exhibits and standard IMAX Dome Theatre) only. Special engagement exhibitions and films, parking and ropes course are not included. We will make one ticket donation per year per organization. If you feel your organization qualifies, please mail, fax or email us your request on your organization’s original letterhead and enclose a copy of your organization’s state or federal letter documenting your 501 (c) (3) status. Please mail along with a self-addressed envelope to:
