Because plants have long been jealous of our ability to live indoors, they attempt to infiltrate our finest mansions and universities by slowly climbing stony facades. Visit a place built specifically to showcase these floral strivers with today's Groupon to the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum, located in Washington Park. Choose from the following options:
- For $8, you get two adult admissions (a $16 value).
- For $13, you get two adult and two children admissions ($26 value).
The 20,000 square foot facility showcases hands-on exhibits and simulators devoted to the importance of forests and their role in providing habitat, water, recreation, wood, and a number of other one-word wonders. The two floors are split into categories, with the first floor focusing on the Pacific Northwest and the second floor display of forest art, history, and culture, as well as a number of special exhibits. Other popular interactive exhibits include the Timberjack Harvester Simulator and River Raft Adventure, where visitors can take a simulated trip through class IV rapids.
- The World Forestry Center Museum is a great place for kids of all ages. Lots of interactive things for them to do, and interesting things for them to learn. – Robert E., Insiderpages
- The tag line for this museum is "It'll change the way you look at trees." and I think that perfectly summarizes it. This is much more than a museum. I had a fantastic time and it was an excellent educational environment. – TravelingMan446, TripAdvisor
