Free Sundays Return to the Discovery Museum

Thanks to a generous grant from the Juan Young Trust, World Forestry Center is renewing our Free Sunday program. This year, we’re offering free admission to our Discovery Museum every Sunday from November 5 through December 17, 2023.

“Our Discovery Museum has always been at the heart of our public work,” said Executive Director, Joe Furia. “We’re thrilled to welcome first-time visitors and long-time patrons to explore the museum free of charge.”

Located in Portland’s forested Washington Park just steps from the MAX Light Rail, World Forestry Center’s Discovery Museum invites visitors to examine forests and consider all the ways they impact our lives. The dramatic 20,000-square-foot wooden building is filled with new exhibits and familiar favorites that explore people’s relationship to the woods.

“We are so grateful to the Juan Young Trust for renewing their support of this program,” said Merrit Thompson, World Forestry Center Development Director. “Inviting more people to connect with forests is central to our work. A program like Free Sundays makes that even more possible.”

Mark your calendars and spread the word!
