Museum admissions can get pretty pricey when you’ve got an entire family in tow. Here are a couple of ways to enjoy those exhibits without straining your budget:
Free Passes From the Seattle Public Library
If you’ve got a library card, then you can check out one museum for a week once every thirty days. Not only is it free, but you can reserve and print passes online.
There are several participating museums, including: Burke Museum, Center for Wooden Boats, Children’s Museum, Experience Music Project, Henry Art Gallery, Log House Museum, Nordic Heritage Museum, Northwest African American Museum and Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience.
Free Museum Days
There are also several museums that have free days. This is a great way to try the museum experience without feeling pressure to stick around and get the value of your admission if the kids get restless.
-Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Asian Art Museum and Seattle Art Museum are free the first Thursday of every month.
-The Museum of Flight is also free first Thursdays, from 5-9 pm.
-Wing Luke Asian Museum is free the first Thursday and third Saturday of each month.
-Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett is free from 5:30-9 pm the third Friday of every month and admission is half price each Thursday from 3-5 pm.
