For the month of January, admission to the Island County Museum in Coupeville is free.

Admissions fees are sponsored by the Island County Historical Society’s Board of Trustees.

“Every month, except April is up for adoption,” said museum director Rick Castellano. “Our hopes are that all 12 months will be sponsored, and that admission will always be free to all our visitors.”

Castellano estimates that the museum greets some 10,000 visitors each year, but that many of those visitors choose not to explore the museum when they learn of the admission fees, which range from $2-$4.

“If we didn’t have to charge admissions, we would likely see 20-40 percent more visitors,” Castellano said.

For more information on how to sponsor museum admissions, please contact Castellano at 360-678-3310, or visit the museum,10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
