You can get discounted museum entry in Seattle and other cities in February

The NFL season is over (congrats to the Kansas City Chiefs for winning Super Bowl LIV!), and February is here. And in Seattle, that means that Seattle Museum Month is underway. Through the end of the month (February 29, since 2020 is a leap year), Seattle visitors staying in select Seattle hotels can receive discounted museum entry at museums across the city.

As Kim Tate of Stuffed Suitcase writes, “if you stay overnight in one of the participating hotels you’ll be given a Stay + Play Museum Pass that will get you half-price admission, for up to four guests, for the entire month.” For a group of four, she says, that works out to $43 in savings at Chihuly Garden of Glass, $49.90 in savings at Seattle Aquarium, $43 in savings at the Museum of Flight, and $63 in savings at the Museum of Pop Culture. In addition, Seattle residents will be eligible for 10% discounts on museum membership fees all month. You can see all 41 participating museums (some are already free) and hotels in Kim’s write-up and on the Seattle Museum Month page.

Other cities offering discounted museum entry in Seattle in February

February is also Museum Month in San Diego, where half-priced admission is available at 40+ San Diego museums with a discount pass. Like in Seattle, each pass is good for up to four people. While passes will also go to guests at participating San Diego hotels, as part of a partnership with Hilton, a hotel stay is not required. To secure discounted museum entry through the end of the month, you can simply pick up a pass at one of a number of libraries or Macy’s stores around the city. See more info here.

In Chicago, meanwhile, Illinois residents are eligible for free entry to museums including the Field Museum of Natural History in February. Some participating museums are offering free visitation only on select dates. Those dates and more information are available via ABC7 and Choose Chicago.
