Each Sunday preceding the 1st quarter moon, the East Bay Astronomical Society invites Members to a free, special private telescope viewing. Unlike our regular viewing on Friday and Saturday evenings, EAS personalizes the experience by taking viewing requests, live interaction, and hosting tours and it's exclusively for our members!

What our members have to say

"We have access to giant telescopes, theaters, nature hikes, exhibits, this beautiful space, all year long. There's always something new happening. Best of all, my kids' imagination and curiosity has been sparked. How do you put a price on that? Thank you, Chabot. Truly."
-The Juarez Family, Family Plus Members

"Chabot is the coolest place on Earth!”
-Jason, 8 yr. old Member

Children's Fairyland Discount.

Two of Oakland's most outstanding family-friendly venues have joined forces to offer its members discounted reciprocal admission. What does that mean? If you're a Fairyland member, show your membership card at Chabot to get $1 OFF ADMISSION for up to five people in your party! If you're a member at Chabot, present your membership card at Fairyland for the same discount. Be sure to have those membership cards on hand to enjoy all of the fantastic features of both locations!

Children's Fairyland is America's first storybook theme park, located on the shores of Lake Merritt in the heart of Oakland. With fantastical attractions, gentle rides and animals, and family-focused entertainment, it's the premier low-tech, high-touch outdoor playground for young children to create, imagine, play, and learn.


Chabot is a member of the Association of Children’s Museums. We have several levels that open the door to additional benefits!
