Each public library within 50 miles of the museum now has a Museum Adventure Pass in their catalog. Library members can check out the pass just as they would a book or other media. The pass grants free admission to the Lumber Museum for everyone in the passholder’s household. It can be used year-round for general admission to the museum. The offer excludes special programs, events, and fundraisers.
