PHMC and its historic sites and museums are proud to participate in the ‘Museums for All’ program!
The Museums for All program helps to enable low-income families to explore Pennsylvania’s rich history and culture by visiting participating state-owned museums such as The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum for a minimal fee of $2 per person, with the presentation of an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card and identification. This offer is for general admission only and excludes certain special programs, events and fundraisers. For more information about the Museums for All program, click HERE.
The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum has partnered with our local libraries to create a free Museum Adventure Pass program. 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 with few exceptions. [The pass cannot be used for admission to select special events (like Bark Peelers’ Festival, Santa in the Shay, the Antique and Collectible Shows, etc.).] Using the pass is easy and with it you can see all exhibits at the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum, including the Shay Locomotive, the Lumber Camp, the Bob Webber cabin, and the Challenges & Choices exhibit.
The museum has content and programs that will appeal to people of all ages, especially children. That is why the pass covers admission for everyone in your household. The Museum Adventure Pass program began in 2017 with great results, and we’re hoping that even more people will take advantage of free admission to the museum in the years to come. As a public institution funded mainly by the taxpayers of the Commonwealth, we’d like our local communities to feel a sense of pride and ownership in the facility. We hope that providing residents with free admission to the museum through public libraries will make it easier for them to access the opportunities for educational and cultural enrichment in our community that the museum provides. Many thanks to our library partners for their participation in the Museum Adventure Pass program!
