Your Digital Membership at The Bishop

At The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature, we’re pleased to move to an all-digital membership platform. Digital membership cards can be downloaded and saved to your smartphone so you never have to worry about losing your membership card or forgetting it at home! Do you have questions about your new digital membership card or how to download it? These FAQs should help! If you have additional questions not answered here, please email us at CommunityEngagement@BishopScience.org.

Q: How do I add the membership card to my iPhone?

iPhones have a native app called Apple Wallet, which is where your new digital membership card will be stored. To put your digital card in your digital wallet, simply:

  1. Use your iPhone to access the email from us containing your new digital card.
  2.  Click the “Download” button in the email.
  3. Click “Add to Wallet.”
  4. Click “Add.”

The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet, where you can access it anytime.

Q: How do I add the membership card to my Android phone?

If you have an Android device, you need to download the “Wallet Passes” app from Google Play. After you have downloaded the app:

  1. Use your smartphone to access the email from us containing your new digital card.
  2. Click the “Download” button in the email.

The card will automatically go to your Wallet Passes app, where you can access it anytime.

Q: Can I use my digital card to receive reciprocal benefits when I visit other participating institutions?

Yes! This card works just like your physical membership card.

Q: I downloaded my card but I can’t find it.

If you have an iPhone, the card will automatically download to Apple Wallet. Check the app for your new card (scroll through any cards that are already there — it might be hiding!). If you have an Android, you’ll need to download Wallet Passes from Google Play prior to downloading the card.

Q: I never received an email message with a link to download my card.

Please contact us at CommunityEngagement@BishopScience.org to ask the membership office to send a new email with a link to your digital card.

Q: Will all adults associated with a membership receive a digital membership card?

Yes. However, if we only have one adult member email address on record, only one digital card will be sent. Please contact us at CommunityEngagement@BishopScience.org to share additional email addresses and to request that additional digital cards be sent.

Q: My name is spelled wrong/membership level is incorrect.

We’re sorry! Please contact CommunityEngagement@BishopScience.org so we can fix the error.
