You can now check out family passes to visit the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center from all 30 of our library branches!
Each pass provides entry to the museum for two adults and any children under age 18 in the household. The pass can be checked out for a two-week period.

The Wenatchee museum offers a variety of exhibits interpreting life in the mid-Columbia River region dating back to the Ice Age — from 11,500-year-old Clovis points discovered in an East Wenatchee orchard to trade goods used by Native Americans to household items used in early 1900’s homes. Other exhibits highlight the landing near Wenatchee of the world’s first trans-Pacific flight in 1931; a comprehensive look at Washington’s apple industry; rotating art and cultural exhibits in the Main Gallery; hand’s-on art activities for children in Coyote’s Corner; and a working model of the Great Northern Railway crossing the Cascade Mountains.
This year, NCW Libraries has 16 family passes to the museum that can be checked out from any of our libraries in Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Okanogan and Ferry counties. The passes must be picked up from the branch, and cannot be ordered through our Mail Order Library.
Our mission is to connect the people of NCW to vital resources and opportunities that foster individual growth and strengthen communities. Also this week we began offering family passes to Ohme Gardens in Wenatchee for checkout with your library card.
