Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum

Washington County, Oregon: The Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) is pleased to announce the addition of the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon to its roster of Cultural Pass to Adventure destinations. Destination passes are available for a one-day check out from the fifteen WCCLS member libraries.

If you are looking for things to do with the family this summer, using a cultural pass is a wonderful way to get an introduction to one of the seven cultural destinations within a day's drive of the greater metropolitan area.
