The Portland Attractions Marketing Alliance – a group of marketing representatives from major attractions around the city – organized the joint membership programs. In 2016, members of the Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center, Oregon Historical Society, Lan Su Chinese Garden, Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks & Minerals, Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, Washington County Museum, & Deepwood Museum & Gardens will have access to free admission for up to four people during the designated months.
Here’s the schedule:
- January 2016: Oregon Zoo
- February 2016: World Forestry Center
- March 2016: Oregon Historical Society
- April 2016: Lan Su Chinese Garden
- June 2016: Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks & Minerals and Washington County Museum
- September 2016: Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum
- October: Washington County Museum
- December 2015: Deepwood Museum and Gardens
The free admission is offered for the whole month, just as it would be for members of that attraction. You may visit as many times as you like at the featured attraction each month.
Visitors just show their proof of membership along with photo ID to the gate attendants at the designated attraction to receive 4 admission tickets.
So, if you have a membership to one of the eight attractions listed above, you’ll get free admission to that month’s attraction for up to four people (only one person needs to be a member).
